Re: Ask and Ye shall receive - Perhaps!
Well there is an opening for a band. What ones were you thinking of Iain. I was giving examples. I do find for demonstrations people love the music and to be able to sing along to Mairi's Wedding, but 8 times through is too much to watch being danced. A request for The Royal Exchange has just come across my desk today. Guess what, it is not on a CD that I can find. Those who know their music would know what to choose for this dance. This is the reason that so many of the new CDs are being used for dances that have no recording . The best advantage of course is live music. We all have our opinions on music and be sure I hear a lot of it.
