Description

Nick Barber’s publications – Nick Barber’s English Selection and Nick Barber’s English Choice, together with their accompanying CDs, have become a standard item for many English traditional musicians. Now, Eighty English Dance Tunes offers a longer look at the sources from which so many of our current favourite tunes have sprung. There is a wealth of great music in here, just itching to get out and get played for dancing!

Packed with interesting information and brilliant but little-known tunes, this book is beautifully presented with a spiral binding and printed on quality paper.
