Subject: Help: CD of Northumbrian dance tunes

Hi, I am looking for a CD of some of the more common Northumbrian dance tunes. Stuff like Morpeth Rant, Corn Riggs, etc - must be in strict tempo and suitable length (I know that many are double minor of indeterminate length but you know what I mean) for dancing to. Any suggestions?

"Rants and Reels" in the Voice of the People Collection has lots of Northumbrian music. Not sure about length but worth a try.

Well, the Topic CD 'Ranting & Reeling' is a set of North-East dance tunes presented as a thematic anthology with no track longer than 4'33" so it might need a bit of editing for actual dance purposes.

Whapweasel is a ceilidh band based in Hexham, Northumberland, whose music is at the cutting edge of what English dance is about today, Many of their tunes are self-composed rather than traditional. More details of their 3 CDs can be found here

Try to find a recording of Joe Hutton, he was magic. I have a tape but that's all.

From the comment about length I assume that you want recordings to dance to rather than to learn from. Is would suggest Upstream by the Bismarcks. Not strictly Northumbrian but nice dancable arrangement of Morpeth Rant. All tracks are strict tempo and right number of times through - ceilidh style for 2 turns of the dance.

I used to have a tape of the Cheviot ranters, and the famous Tyneside band that had Alastair Anderson in it whos name eludes me, but I guess it will be on the links above to Northumbrian folk.

High Level Ranters?

They'd do fine!
