Gordon the Hedgehog

As of March 2017 we are no longer taking bookings.

We have had to make this sad decision because Tony is starting to suffer from arthritis in his hands and, although he is still able to play most of the time, we do not want to let anyone down by taking a booking and then not being able to play on the night.


"Gordon the Hedgehog" is a band from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

The band's repertoire is mainly traditional British, French and Irish music
which is played mainly for dancing.

Formed in 2003 to play at the Cheltenham Ceilidh Club,
the band is now available to play for private and public Ceilidhs and Barn Dances.


Members of the band

Tony Matthews (Melodeons)
Mick Holditch (Guitar)
Cathy Rollo (Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Recorders, Whistles)

New for 2015!

Hazel Jukes (Fiddle)
