For the first tune of each track, the Dewhurst have tried to avoid anything which is commonly associated with a well-known dance, so that all the tracks can be used when ‘any good tune’ is required.  They have chosen a wide variety of tunes, from Scotland, Shetland, Orkney, Ireland, England, Canada and America, some older and some more recent, including several of Chris’s compositions.  Hopefully, you will find your own favourites amongst them, whether for dancing or listening.
