Thread Name: Frank Collins' step dance tune
Subject: RE: Frank Collins' step dance tune
Lots of step dance tunes were collected by folklorist John Meredith. See his books for further info. Unfortunately step dancing and clog dancing had long died out in Australia before Meredith's collecting and only a few steps have survived in written records. One Heather Clarke has researched this subject in depth. Another general source for info. is the 'Trove' newspaper archive.
