Community Dances CD

A brand new re-issue for 2019 of this classic resource, with a range of tunes to country dance to, which can also be used with multiple dances.

Featuring new recordings by 422, Banter, The Diatonics, Boldwood, Oxford NAGS and Contrasaurus. The release also includes detailed notes and advice on using the CD in conjunction with the Community Dances Manual by Producer Gareth Kiddier. The tune sets include the recommended tune that is shown in the Community Dances Manual, as well as additional tunes that will work with this dance. Many of the tunes will fit many other English social folk dances, such as country and ceilidh dancing, in the Manual and elsewhere. To help with this in the track notes we have listed the tune structure, number of bars, dance rhythm (reel or hornpipe etc), and time signature.
