Joining a local dance club is the ideal first step if you have ever wanted to join in at Sidmouth Folk Week or to go to ceilidhs and barn dances.

Jeroka (Jerry, Rose and Kay): another of the local bands who play regularly at Gittisham. Unfortunately Rose has now moved away, but the band is still called Jeroka.

Samples of their music can be found here.
