The Musicians

Music for Crosskey is currently led by Paul Eady on melodeon. Amongst Morris sides  (clog is classed as Morris? alongside Cotswold (hankies and sticks) and the Border tradition (black faced and lot of shouting!), the melodeon is the most commonly used instrument both today and in the past. But we are lucky to also have Mary on Tambourine, Debbie, Sharon, Graham and Leslie variously on melodeon (and assorted tuned drums), Dave on the big bass drum, Richard on Uke and Jane and Chris playing between them a mixture of guitar, melodeon and fiddle!
