Welcome to the website for Contraband – a four to seven piece folk band based in Sussex. We play music for festivals, ceilidhs, weddings and parties and can provide a caller and PA if required. Please contact us to enquire about bookings.

Our next event is Plumpton Village Hall – Saturday 5th March

Yes cleverly combining our ‘No Hall Too Small’ tour with our ‘No Gig Too Big’ tour we shall be pitching up at Plumpton’s well-appointed village hall where we hope to welcome the usual mix of local guests and loyal fans from further afield.

Being spring (we hope) we’ll focus on the joy and only add a bit of sorrow. As usual, real ale at the bar, cabaret-style seating and room to dance if you feel minded.

Tickets £8.50  (£5 Under 16s) from Plumpton Village Stores or online from this link:


Here are six members of Contraband (we don’t seem to have a picture with everyone in it!)
