Subject: RE: tune names - may I vent?
Sorry.... Cut myself of !! Apologies to Leenia if I seemed Churlish,I sort of assumed that "English Country Dance" would be similar to what we would call an bard dance or "English ceilidh" over here, and found it difficult to see how you could plan something like that 3 weeks in advance, and why you would need "secret" meetings, or that degree of specificity in tunes. thanks to "Treewind" above I now understand.
Perhaps we need a U.S To U.K folk dictionary, to avoid international misunderstandings !!!.God knows there are enough of those in the "real" world, !!
