Music & instruments

Music

Every dance page has sheet music which can be downloaded, and a sound file.  At the moment many of the recordings are computer-generated, however, eventually these will be live recordings from our band Phillip’s Dog.

There are a few posts which feature music without dance instructions:

Australian Quadrille music
Clog dancing
Harry Shaw – champion clog dancer
Lady Franklin’s Reel
Mundy’s Quadrilles
Sailor’s Hornpipe
Trad steps

Instruments

These posts feature noteworthy instruments:
