There are clear instructions for each dance and music for the lead tunes is included. The accompanying CD has now been recorded by Yorkshire-based Neil Barron & his Scottish Dance Band, with an additional track for the dance South from Oban (instructions published in Leeds 10 th  Anniversary Book).

The second CD from the talented Dewhurst family band - Chris & Julie on accordion with son Nick on drums. As with their first CD (Crossing Borders), many tracks are for use when ‘any good tune’ is required but there are four tracks for well-known dances and four for dances by Gillian Jennings (instructions available on request). With no less than 22 tunes composed by Chris himself, this CD of 14 tracks should cover every occasion! For more details click here.
Released at the same time as The Sunday Class Book 1 CD, but quite different, reflecting its Australian origins, and another excellent show-piece of Marian's talent!  Keith Smith and his fiddle join Marian and her usual line-up of Graham Bell (2 nd  accordion), Issy Hodgson (Piano & Bass) and Max Ketchin (Drums) to play some excellent tune sets. There are no less than 12 original tunes by Marian Anderson and two of Keith Smith's, plus an impressive array from other composers. Instructions for the 10 new dances are contained in the CD Booklet. For more details click here.
This CD, first released in 2008, and now re-issued by The Sunday Class, contains music for 6 dances devised to celebrate RSCDS Belfast Branch’s Diamond Jubilee (including City of Belfast to Marian’s own legendary tune), 2 dances devised to celebrate their Ruby Anniversary (The Glens of Antrim and The Drumlins of Down) and two generic sets of good tunes for reels and jigs. Marian’s standard band line-up of herself, Graham, Issy and Max are joined by John Sinton (Bass), making this a ‘classic’ Marian Anderson recording. For more details click here.
The Book contains full instructions and crib diagrams (by Keith Rose) for 15 new dances by 6 local devisers, with sheet music for 5 original tunes. On the CD there are 15 tracks for dances in the Book plus Marian’s own set for John Drewry’s ‘Ramadan-ce’, and a bonus track, ‘Barry & Doreen’s Continental Capers’ (with dance instructions and sheet music included in the CD booklet).
