Q. What tunes do you play and which dances do you cater for?

A. We have a wide selection of tunes mostly of Scottish origin which we arrange into sets for the dances. The dances are all controlled by our caller who chooses them based on ability of the dancers at the event. If you have something in mind let us know well in advance.
