Ceilidh Band Project

Ceilidh Band Project

 

The arrangements and dances in this resource were taken from Camden Music Service’s Wider Opportunities (First Access Instrumental) Ceilidh Project which has run over the past few years in association with the English Folk Dance and Song Society. The project provides an opportunity for children to learn ceilidh tunes and the dances that go with them. During the project they are involved as musicians (playing to accompany other children dancing) and as dancers (dancing whilst other children are playing).
