Thread Name: Dance Groups from BBC Barn Dance
Subject: Dance Groups from BBC Barn Dance
I'm doing some research about folk music in the north of England and have come across some less than familiar (at least to me, here in Durham) names of dance groups who appeared on the BBC radio and TV show Barn Dance during the 1960s.

Do any 'Catters remember the John Peel Dancers (who I gather came from somewhere near Shap) or the St Helen's Dance Band? Also the Greensleeves Dancers or Dance Band? Better still, were any of you members of these groups?
