We bring a lively sound on a variety of instruments - mainly fiddle, guitar and bass, but often flute, keyboard and harp.
Dampier's have established a reputation as a Folk Festival Dance Band, a Playford Ball Band, or Ceilidh or Barn Dance Band.
We run workshops in playing folk music at Halsway Manor, Folk Festivals, Chinnor, and the Oxford Music Day.
Dampier's, performing as Moira & Peter have also been bringing concerts to those that cannot get out to professional performances under the auspices of the charity 'Music in Hospitals and Care'.
The band can play suitable background music for weddings and other celebrations.
As we can't visit Hospitrals at the moment, we are participating in this fund raising project.
A stylistically unique Country Folk Band from day one, the members of Dampier's Round have been been singing, performing, and playing in sync as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. (they have!) Throughout the course of the band’s union, they have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; performing at a variety of venues, e.g Whitby, Eastbourne, Broadstairs, Halsway Manor, making loads of public appearances, all the while recording new music.

We are delighted to be able to participate in this event again. This year, it is live. We are performing at The Folk Museum on Saturday at noon. Do join us.
