Index of dances and tunes
The key signature given below is as in the original.
When you click through to the individual tune, you will find both the original page (with dance instructions) and, where appropriate, a transcription in a key more likely to find favour with contemporary folk instrumentation. During April 2020, with the help of volunteer Alan Helsdon, these transcriptions are being updated, with errors corrected and in additional keys accessible for instruments with a limited range and key. They are accessible as free downloadable pdfs and each tune has a short sound clip.
If anyone recognises the tunes as versions of something else, or has any additional information, we would love to hear from you- please email us.
