what is English Country Dance Music? It's the tunes from Barn Dances
Ceildhs and Morris Dancing! Music that people like to dance to, it can
be a waltz or a polka but most of all it's the Hornpipe!
hornpipes! Those kind of steppy jumpy tunes that sound like the
seaside, full of rhythm and fun! It's a hornpipe for us every time!!

Olde Vic Banned also The Olde Vic Band---In fact we should have
chosen a name which was easy to remember and you couldn't mispell like The Poatoes or something!
