Welcome to the Amazing Catsfield Steamers’ website, where we’re looking forward to a busy 2024. We hope we’ve included everything you need to find us if you’re a new fan and to find out more about us, new fan or old.  Dive in !

The Catsfield Steamers have played British traditional music, for social dance since the mid-1970’s. 

We have played all over the country and abroad, for festivals, weddings and all manner of celebrations. The melody and harmonies are provided by accordeon, banjo, fiddle, mandola, mandolin, melodeon and saxophone, backed by driving rhythms from guitar, bass and drums.  The band’s callers have vast experience of guiding the dancers, whatever their level of experience, through the dances enjoyed so much by our forbears and people young and old today.

l to r: Peter, Stuart, Brian, Patsy (caller), Andy, Paul E, Paul R, Nigel 

Make sure you bring suitable shoes for dancing – once you hear the music you will definitely not be able to remain seated!
It is with huge sadness that we have to impart the devastating news of the passing of Will (Eric Will Downes) in the early hours of 20th January. Will & wife Jane were the mainstay of the Band for almost it’s entire existence, finally retiring only in 2014. 
Rest in peace, Will 😢
