Bands

Oli is proud to be working with a number of very talented bands which are listed below.

Concert Ensembles

Cupola

Oli currently works with a new exciting folk trio "Cupola" playing Soprano Sax, Clarinet, Melodeon, Cajon and singing backing vocals. Cupola perform across the U.K. and the world, mainly at Folk and International Festivals, playing new tracks composed by Oli and newly arranged traditional works. Some of these tracks can be heard on the Composition page.

Cupola:Ward

Another form derived from Cupola comes "Cupola:Ward", collaborating the fine talents of Lucy Ward, a singer/songwriter from Derbyshire and Cupola’s intricate instrumental arrangements and bringing together four part harmaony. Their songs are both traditional and self penned with detailed intricate arrangements.

Ceilidh Bands

DanceCupola

Cupola have now branched out to create "DanceCupola", a groovy 5 piece ceilidh band with a back line of Bass and Mandola underpinning the distinctive and exciting music from the trio, Cupola. Oli’s composition work is also showcased in this line-up too, and they perform at a range of festivals and ceilidh series across the country.

Triptych

Triptych (pronounced "Trip-tick") are a new ceilidh band who made their debut at the Anchor gardens, as part of Sidmouth Folk Week 2011. They draw their material from a variety of sources; largely English and English-style tunes (including some self-penned), but their search for awesome tunes has also taken them further in to Europe – their set list currently includes a waltz from Belgium and a Swedish schottis!

Mine's A Pint

Mine’s a Pint are an energetic young ceilidh band based in the midlands, playing tunes from across the British Iles (and sometimes beyond) as well as some self penned tunes. The band creates a lively atmosphere for a dance through its exciting arrangements and invigourating performances. The line up for this band consists of a back line of Drums, Bass and Guitar with lead instruments on Soprano Sax, Melodeon and Fiddle.
