'Lewes Favourites' English dance tunes practice session

About

If you would like to play English dance music, here is an opportunity to meet other players to learn and swap tunes regardless of what instrument you play, to what standard, and whether or not you read music. This will be a chance to nail down some of those tunes that you recognise when you hear them but can't quite remember, to put the names to familiar tunes, and to play them over slowly until you are sure of them. Printed music and computer software are available for 285 of the Lewes area's favourite tunes.
The tunes were published as two books. Volume 2 (105 tunes) is available for £12, illustrated with dance notations from Sussex manuscripts, anecdotes, photographs of the habitats where they flourish and an index of the combinations in which they are often played. Unfortunately, Volume 1 (180 tunes) is out of print but you can obtain the tunes in various computerised forms. Discreet tape recorders are welcome if you don't read music.
