    Re: Looking for music

    I am looking for the names of tunes I could use for a 16/16 
    Strathspey/Reel  Medley - Frae A The Airts. I have seen somewhere 
    that Galway Hornpipe and Countess of Cassilis Strathspey are used. 
    Are these pieces of music recorded as 16/16 or is one a total 
    hornpipe and the other a Strathspey as their names suggest? I also 
    need to know where to purchase the music. Open for any help. Thanks 
    in advance.

    We recently danced Frae A' The Airts to the music for The Glittering 
    Caves (Highlander 11, Track 9). It worked quite well.  The other 
    tracks on this Album can be viewed at:

    Re availability: many albums are available from TACSound (xxxxxxxx@xxx.xxx)
    
    or through the TACSound website (which was down when I wrote this):
    
    http://www.tac-rscds.org/TACsound.html
    
    All the above was partly to answer Marla's question and partly to 
    illustrate the value of dance data!
    
    
    Happy Dancing!
