Hampshire-based Threepenny Bit are an example of how traditional dance tunes and contemporary sounds can be blended into a fresh interpretation of folk music. This dynamic eight-piece band combines a group of diehard folkies with some of the finest young jazz and classical musicians of the south. They play bold arrangements of traditional and original tunes with infectious stage energy for concerts and ceilidh dancing.

“Threepenny Bit is an impressive example of how well contemporary elements can be intertwined seamlessly with the reflective qualities of traditional folk sounds. In a short space of time, their music has already sparked great interest and esteem in the British folk scene.”

Emily Bright (Bright Young Folk)

“Threepenny Bit’s arrangements are fresh and unrestricted. Their approach accomplished and natural.”

Tim Caroll (Folk Words)


The band is available to play at weddings, parties, ceilidhs, festivals and pub events either as a concert or ceilidh with caller and can be configured to a smaller size if a massive sound isn’t required!
