Thread Name: Contra Set List - 2003 FSGW Getaway
Subject: Contra Set List - 2003 FSGW Getaway
Below is the DRAFT set list for the Contra Dance at the 2003 FSGW Getaway. I have attempted to group three tunes which appear to me to go together as a dance medley for a given dance. I am no devisor, so feel free to substitute or modify this list by set arrangement or by tunes, to suit yourselves. Most of these tunes are found in the Fiddlers Fakebook, the Portland Collection, or the Ruffwater Collection, which are fairly common resources.

Since this class is scheduled for an hour, I expect that no more than five dances will be completed in that time. (We should also agree on a waltz from the Getaway Waltz Thread to play at the end.)

And remember that the fiddlers rule, unless there is another lead instrument (Mando, Flute, Banjo) that wants to devise a set to suit themselves. Thanks, Don
