Thread Name: Origin of Pavane nickname
Subject: Origin of Pavane nickname
A few people have asked me this, but I can't track down the threads, so here goes.
It started with a book Pavane by Keith Roberts which I read in the late 1960's. When I bought a boat, it seemed like a good name - sort of slow stately dance over the waves. So we had Pavane in 1973, followed by Pavane II in the late 1970's, which I still have, tucked in the garage. (Just a 15 ft day boat for going out into Swansea Bay). In 1995, we were invited to a festival in Udine (Northern Italy) for which we needed a name to perform as a duo. After much searching, we couldn't find anything we liked better. I had never heard or heard of the song PAVANNE
We have never performed under this name anywhere else.
