English Country Dance Music Sessions

Sundays 7-8:30 pm

UVMC English Country Dance Instrumental Music sessions provide a friendly, flexible and spontaneous small ensemble setting for beginning, intermediate to experienced players of a variety of traditional instruments. Sessions are interactive in choice of music, with some of the tune list coordinated with local English Country Dance series. Carol Compton is the usual musical leader. Occasional guest musician leaders are invited. Drop-ins are welcome. Sources for written music are primarily the P. Barnes, ed. English Country Dance Music, Books 1 & 2 and the P. Matthiesson, ed. Waltz Books I, II, & III.
