Full Circle
In   2005   Roy   Goldring   published   “A   Reel   for Alice”,   another   collection   of   lovely   social   dances. At   the time,   music   was   not   recorded   for   these   dances,   so   as   the   book   has   just   been   re-printed   by Scotscores, it was an appropriate time to come full circle and produce this CD. Ian   Robertson   (fiddle   &   accordion)   is   joined   by   Muriel   Johnstone   on   piano   and   bass   for   16   lively tracks,    using    many    original    tunes    by    Muriel    and    Ian    alongside    other    well-known    composers, interleaved with traditional tunes. A Reel for Alice and Other Social Dances devised by Roy Goldring is available from Scotscores .
