Putting Good Cape Breton Sets Together And Connecting the Dancing Rhythm to the Tunes

Many concert sets are made up of a march, Strathspeys and reels and there are changes in the tempos from one to another. I can show you how to do that and help with ideas of choosing tunes to make a good set. Also we can talk a bit about why the Cape Breton sound is so tied to the dance tradition.
