Tiger Moth began just as an all-star recording unit, bringing together musicians who had played in many notable bands of the 'new wave of English country dance music' in the '70s and early '80s including the Old Swan Band, the New Victory Band, the English Country Blues Band, Cock & Bull, the Albion Band, Jumpleads and Oak. But their first single and debut album caused such a demand that they happily became a gigging entity and for the next five years roared around UK festival ceilidhs, revered or feared for their noisy, no-holds-barred, improvisational approach

Tiger Moth from 2004 include most of the original members. The line-up is Rod Stradling (melodeons), Jon Moore (guitars), Chris Coe (hammered dulcimer), Maggie Holland (bass), Ian Anderson (slide guitar) and Ben Mandelson (baritone bouzouki, electric kabosy and other stringed things), plus Fran Wade (fiddle - from Grand Union), drummer/percussionist Martin Brinsford (Brass Monkey, Old Swan Band, Grand Union) and percussionist Danny Stradling (ex-Old Swan Band, Oak). Original drummer John Maxwell has sadly passed away. Their caller is the best in the new wave English ceilidh business - the renowned Gordon Potts
