Dancers love good music, and there’s nothing that lifts our spirits more than a band on song, and music that lifts the roof off and sets our feet dancing. Here we celebrate our Scottish Country Dance music and musicians.
Peter Elmes played a very special role in the musical history of Johnsonville Club. From at least 1984, Peter Elmes “and His Band” (in early years) or “and Associates” (in later years) played for the club’s annual dances and tartan nights.
Peter and other musicians continued to lighten our hearts, and liven our feet with their music during 2018. See more here

“Live” music at Johnsonville: A history (2016)
Johnsonville’s 2016 celebration of 50 Golden Years was an opportunity to recognise the special role of the musicians who’ve played for us. We appreciate them all – club members who share their musical talents with us, young musicians who have been encouraged to grow their skills playing with the band, and the bands who play for us at tartan nights and annual dances.
