Well what do we sound like? - This is what other people say.

Play background music

Their distinctive, bouncy and very rythmic style, which has won them acclaim is instantly recognisable and eminently danceable.
Colin Andrews - What's Afoot

They demonstrate an enviably precise, rhythmic sense and their phrasing and timing is almost metronomic which makes for an invariably controlled dance response. Arrangements are well worked-out, the musicians are all very competent. Jenny Coxon

Fine tunes played in a wonderfully rhythmic style, with rock-solid tempos that defy the feet to keep still.
Pete Harris - Folk On Tap

Quintessentially all that is wonderful about English traditional social dance music; vibrant, contagiously danceable and tuneful.
Lawrence Heath - Folk Roots

Play straightforward English country-dance music, which is infectious and good to dance to.
Ben & Tool of Peeping Tom

Chunky English sound with Tuba & Percussion know you are listening to some first class dance musicians.
Chris Beaumon

So how do they sound? Superb, simply superb.
This is toe-tapping, wants-to-be-danced-to music
Green Man Review - Portland USA

I can assure you that the Bursledon Village Band really is one of the very best country dance bands in the land. I never tire of the jaunty, melodic measures of English bands like the Bursledons. All the members are masters of their craft
