For as Many as Will: A Tour of English Country Dance
Friday, March 19, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In this brand new video presentation, Seven Times Salt takes a tour of English country dances through the centuries, from the first edition of The English Dancing Master to the present day. We’ll explore a splendid variety of dance tunes in their many guises, from court masques and Elizabethan taverns to Purcell’s opera house and the finest Regency ballrooms. In addition to our original arrangements for broken consort, you’ll hear versions of ECDs as cittern solos, bagpipe airs, divisions for violin and viol, broadside ballads, and more. Includes newly filmed material, samples from past performances, and chat with the musicians. Presented by the Harvard Square English Dance series.
