Littleborough Lantern Parade

The festival will let us know exactly what they want when they know (there are a few changes this year).
But, for now, assume it will be similar to last year.
Time to start thinking about illuminating yourself/your instrument to help make the parade look spectacular.

Rochdale Scottish Society Social by Oakenhoof and That's all Folk

Oakenhoof and That's All Folk will be running a social for the Scottish Society, which will be mostly music and dance based (but they might want another with games in the future).

It will comprise:

- Some "called" dances - music by That's All Folk and Oakenhoof (set list below)

- A small number of exhibition dances (clog or sword) we can decide this depending on who's coming

- Supper, raffle, etc

- Some scottish dances (which they'll do to their own music)


So we need:

- Musicians (we'll form one big band with no amplification) - it's a dulcimer friendly environment.

Please note we'll be playing everything at a fairly fast tempo

- Dancers

- Callers


We need to keep to the tune set because That's All Folk have been working on them - but we can be flexible with calling depending on who's available.

Tunes (and potential dances)

Pant Coran YWynn

Buttered Peas

Wha Wouldne Fecht for Charlie

Donkey Riding

Salmon Tails

Rattling Bog

Kesh set (but separate)

Canale En Octobre

Manchester Hornpipe

Michael Turner's Waltz


Probably also the Highland Widow's Lament and Loch Katrine's Lady for the exhibition bit.
