Gaily tripping, lightly skipping

(And not an HMS Pinafore in sight!)

David McGuinness’s Concerto Caledonia will be playing for a day of Quadrilles and Contredanses in Edinburgh this Saturday, as Talitha Mackenzie leads a Regency Dance workshop.  Never was a band better informed than this one!  Since they may be drawing upon Bass Culture repertoire, it seems appropriate to post details of the event here.  So … do you know your Quadrilles from your Contredanses?

Quadrilles and Contredanses – Saturday 6 June, Edinburgh

  • Dance Workshop 10.30 AM to 4.30 PM (£20)
  • Regency Ball 7.30-9.30 PM (£8/£6 or £5 with Workshop ticket)
  • Venue:  Scottish Storytelling Centre, 43-45 High Street, Edinburgh, with live music on period instruments throughout the day from members of Concerto Caledonia.

All welcome! Low-heeled shoes or dance pumps recommended ~ Regency dress suggested but not required for the ball.
