RSCDS Banffshire Branch Dance Music CD

The Banffshire Branch of the RSCDS launched its CD, A' the best fae Banffshire on 30 June, 2006 in the Fishermans' Hall, Buckie.

Guests of honour were Stewart Adam, Chairman of the RSCDS and his wife Chris, the devisers of the dances, the composers of the original tunes, the recording band Colin Dewar and his Scottish Country Dance Band together with teams of dancers from Millbank School, Buckie, Portessie School and the Banffshire Branch members.

The CD contains music for all the dances in the Book, together with a couple of 'encores' and extra dance sets. The music is perfectly suitable for dances which are not in the book.
