Music Used
By The Village Green Ceilidh Band

Music is the first consideration of the band and caller. A match of the music to the dances is, of course, important, as is a match of dances to participants.

The members of the band are all dancers as well as musicians. In other words if we wouldn't, or couldn't dance to it, then it is no good for you!

The tunes we use are commonly found at ceilidhs. They are a mix of English, Scottish and Irish, with some American. They are easy to dance to; played at a good tempo and with clear phrasing to aid the new dancer to hear the changes.

As many as five different tunes are used for each dance set. They have names like The Rollicking Irishman, Smash the Windows and Canny Newcassle. Enjoy them!
