French connections

A few of us went to Les Panards Dansants yesterday which was part of a weekend of French Traditional Music and Dance in Otley, near Leeds.  We have a ceilidh next May, in Hessle, which involves a weekend of people from Hessle’s twin town of Bourg de Thizy, France, visiting.   So it would be nice to play them some French music and do some French dancing as well as traditional English music and dance.

We have been playing some French traditional music recently as two of the band members have houses in France and have books of french music which are really interesting to play.  You can definitely hear the tunes that are perfect for hurdy-gurdy!
