There’s a short video clip at the bottom of this page. Firstly, here are a few tracks, mostly recorded live at recent gigs. The first three have Antonella calling the dances, to give an idea of what a Fezziwig ceilidh is like. The first tune here was written by Ruth after a particularly wet garden-party in August 2015, when a very puzzled-looking frog came and sat just in front of the band as we played in a leaky gazebo. It’s called The Soggy Frog, and the dance, appropriately, is the MOSELEY BOG:-
This one is the CANADIAN BARN DANCE, and the tunes are Winster Gallop and The Dorset Four-Hand Reel:-
And here’s the YIDDISH DANCE, for which we play Bay Mir Bistu Sheyn. It gets faster and faster and usually provides an exiting climax to the evening:-
Next, a live recording of Galopede and Speed The Plough:-
This is an Austrian tune which Liz first heard many years ago played on hand-bells. It’s called Der Schneewalzer (The Snow Waltz). There’s no set dance for this, but you know how to waltz, don’t you!? So what’s stopping you?
Here’s a recording we did in September 2016 of two mazurkas, Fubu Mazurka and The Green Hills Of Tirol:-
Finally, this is a short video clip taken at a wedding gig in May 2016. The tune is another of Ruth’s: The Rights Of Woman:-
