Thread Name: country dances for Armistice WW1
Subject: RE: country dances for Armistice WW1
Thanks so much for all the ideas so far
We are fairly OK for tunes
One of the video clips shows a two step which is definitely something I was thinking to include either the Military or the Britannica
I guess what I am trying to find is a record of a village knees up as part of an Armistice celebration with some mention of the dances
I know there was a bit of a revival of folk dancing due to Cecil Sharp's publications of that era and I guess I might just have to guess - it probably doesn't matter too much if the tunes are authentic but it would be nice if I could find something

Cheers
Sarah
