Welcome to the Amazing Catsfield Steamers’ website, where we’re up & running again after a difficult couple of years – looking forward to a busy 2023. 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 !

As you may know, old timers Jane (caller) and Will (melodeon) took a bow early in 2014 and a well earned retirement.  Paul (guitar) and Jo (flute) moved on at the same time (info@glashin.co.uk) but, over forty years on, the Steamers are still live and now nearly nine years (and over 80 gigs) into another change of line-up. 

l to r: Brian, Paul E, Stuart, Nigel, Andy, Paul R

It’s not so unfamiliar.  You’ll see that there are still three of the previous crew, including two from the earliest days.  The sharper-eyed among you will recognise two more as having been with the Band for lengthy runs on previous occasions and we’ve even found space for some completely new faces.  We’ve managed to keep that familiar Steamers’ sound and danceability – but with a new twist or two.

As dancers you’ll be in the safe hands of experienced and friendly callers.

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, 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.
Make sure you bring suitable shoes for dancing – once you hear the music you will definitely not be able to remain seated!
