Spiral Dance is an Adelaide-based Pagan folk rock band whose musical focus is on the concepts of magic, myth and legend.

The band was formed in 1992 as a project to explore some of the more mystical elements in life and has drawn its energy from the songwriting and vocal skills of Adrienne Piggott. Adrienne's lyrics are supported by guitar and button accordion, underpinned with bass and percussion, all arranged to blend acoustic folk-rock with Celtic harmony.

To date, the band has released eight albums and toured extensively in Australia, the United States and most recently the United Kingdom, playing concerts with Damh the Bard and a final concert at Witchfest International. Spiral Dance will be touring the UK August/September 2014 with appearances at Glastonbury Faerie Ball, The Mercian Gathering and shows with Damh the Bard.
