John also maintains his folk traditions by performing with a local Ceilidh band.

Established in 1992, Skiphire are a professional, highly experienced and respected Ceilidh band. John, along with Richard Hubbard (bass, percussion, guitar) and Mario Price (violin, double bass) and occasionally other talented musicians, perform a wide variety of English, Scotish and Irish traditional jigs and reels etc but can also draw upon John and Mario's huge repetoire of popular rock and pop standards, light Jazz, Gypsy tunes and original songs.

Richard is a highly experienced and humourous Caller, who can cater for the serious dancer as well as beginners and those who just want to have fun. Their combined talents and versatility make them ideal for weddings, anniversaries and parties and mean they are one of the most popular and sought after bands of their kind in East Anglia.
