  • Description

    Colourful interpretation of English 18th Century dance tunes from the Kynaston Collection. This is an album in ‘The Dance Collection’, distinguished from other tune albums because the music is played at the right tempo for dancing and played the right number of times through to make a sensible dance. Played on fiddle, oboe and accordion - accompanied by a book of the same name containing music and steps by renowned caller Andrew Shaw. The book has facsimiles of the original music and dance notation, plus transcriptions of the music edited by Paul Sartin and Paul Hutchinson.
