The Falconers

Based in Bromyard, Herefordshire, The Falconers English Folk Dance Band was formed in 1975, initially to play for the fortnightly folk dance club that still meets in the town, but quickly playing to a wider audience, especially after appearances at the Sidmouth and other Folk Festivals. The band is now usually a duo, with Roger Wilkins – founder – on accordion and Maggie Percy on flute. Roger and Maggie have played together virtually from the inception of the band in 1975, and are known for their devotion to danceable music – strongly believing that, “Dancing is Music made visible”.
