The core of Full Circle is Veronica & Ted Lane#*, two former military musicians who traveled extensively and played many styles of music with the Navy band and their own trio, "Seabreeze."  Now Ted & Veronica enjoy playing Celtic, Irish and Old Time tunes on guitar and hammered dulcimer for contra- and English Country dances. 
 
Full Circle usually performs as a duo.  Occasionally, they add guest musicians including woodwind specialist, Robbie Zukauskas and violinist, Mark Atkins.

Since 2002, Full Circle has become a well known English Country dance group in the Southeast and has had the privilege of playing for such renowned callers as Kathy Anderson, Michael Barraclough, Reg Battle, Nicolas Broadbridge, Barrie Bullimore, Brad Foster, Brooke Friendly, Sharon Green, Bruce Hamilton, Robin Hayden, Nikki Herbst, Scott Higgs, Colin Hume, Orly Krasner, David Millstone, Gene Murrow, and Jacqueline Schwab.
 

When playing for contra dances, the band uses a combination of acoustic and electric instruments.  They mix the percussive hammered dulcimer with flute, saxophone, EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) and fiddle.  Rhythm backup comes from acoustic or electric guitar as well as looped electric bass and electronic drums for extra punch.  By varying their instrument combinations and rhythms for the different tunes, the group can sound traditional.........or not.
