We are a band from Norfolk featuring melodeon, hurdy gurdy, bagpipes, flute and bass. Not just another dance band - we implant rhythm and groove into all our music - filling dance floors with the grooviest smiliest dancers you'll ever have had the pleasure of being amongst. Shaped by the traditional dance music of central France and our own influences, the original tunes make a dynamic and exciting range of new material. Our music is as good to sit and listen to as it is for concerts, French style 'Bal-folk' and traditional Ceilidhs. www.xim.org.uk
