Wednesday 1st March 2017 – Club Night

This month we featured the bourrée, which according to one source is, a very lively old traditional French dance from several mainly Southern provinces. It is usually played and accompanied by a Cabrette (one of the French bagpipes) a Vielle (hurdy-gurdy) and fiddle and accordion. Depending on regional customs and rhythm (2 or 3 beats) the dance can be slightly different but always awesome. Three club members, Serena, Quentin and Chris, each taught us to their favourite  bourrée.
