ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After having countless numbers of people ask about a dance album and a hurdy gurdy album, Apryl Knight decided to take the plunge and accomplish both goals in one CD. She arranged 15 dance tunes (picked by doing a poll on the SCA Facebook list) to be useful both for dancing (tempo and repeat structure were checked by an advisory panel of awesome SCA dancers!) and listening (see if you can follow the melody in Horse's Bransle as it jumps from instrument to instrument!)
