THE ELECTRIC CEILIDH BAND

Yoghurt Home

Here's our tune list, arranged in sets for dancing. The "Dance" column either gives a suggested dance for each set, or a bizarre name that has nothing to do with dancing.

Information for our callers
Tunes we are currently concentrating on (core repertoire) look like this.
Tunes we are less happy to play in public - either because we've gone off them or because we're still developing them - look like this.

The tunes are linked to abc notation files for you to download and meddle with. Feel free, but please preserve the original authorship details where given, and give credit if you use them. BUT! Due to Orange destroying our web site recently, and having to move to a new host, the links to abc files and dances are temporarily broken. Working on that...
