Eastbourne International Folkdance Festival 2017

Pat Shaw Ball

Pat Shaw Ball with Colin Hume and Keeping Thyme Sunday 30 April 2017
Pat Shaw wrote dances in various styles, but is best remembered for his Playford-style dances: The Slof Galliard, Monica's Delight, John Tallis's Canon and many more. He was also the first person after Cecil Sharp to study Playford's original wording and offer his own interpretations; his version of Mr Beveridge's Maggot has virtually replaced Sharp's version.

2017 is the centenary of his birth, so what better way to start the festival season than with a Pat Shaw Ball?
