One local band which has a strong following are the Widdershins. A five piece Barn Dance and Ceilidh Band, formed some 15 years ago and first called The Broadgate Band, taking their name from a local farm in Westerdale in whose barn they first performed.
The literal meaning of "widdershins" is "anti-clockwise or AGAINST THE SUN", this has a special significance in North Yorkshire, but to find out what it is, you will have to go to one of their gigs or visit their Web Site www.widdershins.org.uk
The Widdershins have released a CD and you can also hear samples of this on their Web Site.
