Twenty five years of folk dancing - fun, frolics and feuds.

A rough outline of a book or e-book that I hope to complete by 2027.

Many existing sections of this website will be incorporated, not necessarily in the order shown.


I am hoping to expand parts of the website and to add new sections - I simply don't have the time to do all this myself so I envisage using editors, commencing maybe 2023. If interested please contact me.

Sidmouth Folk Festival - a detailed history from around 2000.

Folk dance clubs - a history of 10 or 20 small local clubs - and why they succeeded or failed.

The Proxy Parents - some of the more obnoxious people in English Folk dance.

Women in folk dance - whilst most of the ones you meet are charming (albeit often a litle weird) some have a wholly malevolent attitude. Most of these are divorced - and their behaviour parallels that of many women on dating websites. Some examples will be given!

Articles and letters from Set and Turn Single magazine.

Teaching folk dance - my own attempt to do this, when so many others have failed.

To be continued!
