3D are Chris, Julie and Nick Dewhurst, well-known in folk dance circles, both for their live music and their many recordings.

The band is equally at home playing romping reels and sensitive slow airs, strict Scottish and purest Playford (well, as pure as you can get with two accordions, drum kit and trumpet!)  They enjoy bringing the music to life with their own unique interpretations, drawing on many different musical styles, but their aim is always to fit the tune perfectly to the dance, and to provide that essential ‘lift’ to help keep dancers on their toes – even at the end of a long day’s dancing at the festival!
