Red Shed is a six-piece barn-dance band with caller playing high energy traditional English and Irish dance tunes. The Devon-base band has a special twist ~ a solid back-line of bass, drums, and electric guitar combine with fiddle, sax, and whistle. This creates a unique combination of 18th-century influences with a 21st-century edge.

As well as playing for weddings and parties, Red Shed has played at some of the best folk music event across the country – Sidmouth, Cornwall and Wimborne Folk Festivals; Guernsey Arts Festival and Cecil Sharpe House in London. A folky institution, the band has been together for 25 years, even playing as far afield as Yaroslavl in Russia.
