Lancaster Eurodance


Featuring Yannick Minvielle-Debat (song) and Michael Beeke (bagpipes), Sian  Phillips (accordion) and Paul Sherwood (hurdy-gurdy, clarinet).

We will dance some of the simple and fun dances from Brittany and central France. Most of the dances are easy for beginners to join in with, and involve dancing in lines and circles as well as couples.

With support from Salt Pie Lane, a wonderful folk ensemble based at Queen Elizabeth School, led by experienced Lancaster-based musician Jane Lawrence. The band are equally at home playing music from the British Isles to Klezmer music, from France and Brittany to Scandinavia. "Not your average school band!"
