Short & Sweet
For   as   long   as   they   can   remember,   dance   teachers   have   asked   Chris   &   Julie   whether   their   next recording   would   include   short   tracks,   either   for   short   dances   or   for   practising   longer   dances   with   fewer couples.   They   have   always   included   a   few,   but   with   the   growing   popularity   of   short   but   interesting dances, and smaller classes, they decided to make this the focus of this CD. The   20   tracks   (plus   a   final   waltz)   include   as   many   of   the   common   permutations   and   combinations   of length   and   style   as   possible,   with   all   tracks   intended   for   use   when   ‘any   good   tune’   is   required.   As   on their   previous   CDs,   there   are   tunes   from   Shetland,   Orkney,   Ireland,   England,   Canada   and   America; some old, some new (including 15 by Chris) and all played in the Band’s own inimitable style.
