The Old Boot, Seaford, never disappoints. Quality crowd. Excellent dancing. We’ll be back on August 🙂 Meanwhile, the folk-rock phenomenon that is Buckler’s Reel moves to Portslade, and The Victoria. Close to the station makes it easy to have a good night out with us and not have to worry about who’s driving. That’s sorted then. See you there 😉


Lovely people at our first gig at Ashington Village Club. Thank you to all who came along and we look forward to a return there in December. Next up is one of our favourite venues, The Old Boot, Seaford. Lots of seating with views of the band, plus room to dance ( for Sue as well as patrons 🙂 Well worth the drive. Hope you can make it. Before that, a late booking at a new venue for the duo, right on your doorstep if you’re a Worthing-ite. See the gig calendar for details. 🙂

Well we’re putting away our Irish hats and deely boppers for another year, but keeping in some of our best Irish tunes whilst adding new stuff all the time. Next up….Buckler’s Reel come to Ashington! Looking forward to this new venue and introducing the BR brand of folk-rock fun to new people. Check the gig calendar for details. Meanwhile, before that you can catch Buckler’s Lite at The Old Boot, Seaford, helping them out in an emergency, with the full band playing there in April. See you soon.

We had a fun time at The Victoria, Portslade this month, and looking forward to going back in April. Before that, we’ve got St Patrick’s Night to celebrate, so why not come and join us for that. Check the gig calendar then organise a shared taxi. No probs!

The gig calendar is filling up nicely now which is good news. Did you know that the full band only plays twice a month? That means if you want that kind of full on folk-rockin’ fiesta, check our calendar now and get in quick if there’s a gap. Maybe now’s the time to plan and book for that Summer Festival? Contact Sue, the holder of our diary, via info on this website or message her via Facebook. Don’t miss out 🙂


If you booked us in 2017 or you came to see us, Buckler’s Reel would like to thank you all and wish you a very happy rockin’ Christmas. (If you didn’t, let’s try to remedy that in 2018 shall we?) We’ve had a good year, playing  new venues in Bexhill and Portslade, plus fun times in Billingshurst, Southwick, Burgess Hill, Seaford. And it was great to gig in Worthing again. Also a highlight has to be playing our first ever Sausage and Cider Festival in Ditchling. Hoping for more of the same in 2018 plus some new opportunities to spread the Buckler’s Reel message of joy, jigs and jars (all done responsibly of course 🙂 )

See you soon
