Another great opportunity to dance to Sandy Nixon and his Band in Cornwall has arisen.
Come and join us on Saturday 22nd June at Liskeard Public Hall (The Town Hall) 3-5 West Street Liskeard PL14 6BW
from 7pm to 11pm for the White Feather Dance.
. Sandy Nixon and His Band are one of the top Scottish Country dance bands in this country and we are very fortunate to have them play for us again this year. They were down in Liskeard in February for the Haggis Thrash.
This is a very special dance to celebrate the life of Ruth Thornton who sadly passed away last year. Ruth inspired and encouraged so many people to take up Scottish Country dancing and it is a fitting tribute to her and her love of the dance to be holding this evening. The dance is being organised by Ruth’s daughters Kathy and Hazel.
Tickets are an incredibly reasonable £8 which includes a buffet supper. Available from Kathy Greensides 07815 418909
The programme includes many of Ruth’s favourite dances and hopefully yours too!
Hooper’s Jig, The Rutland Reel, Sandy’s Scotch Broth, The Huntsman, The Montgomerie’s Rant, Monadh Liath, The Dancing Master, Neidpath Castle, Bratach Bana, The Hazel Tree, Miss Johnstone of Ardrossan, The Gentleman, Father Connelly’s Jig, Rest and be Thankful, the Moray Rant, Blooms of Bon Accord, Best set in the Hall, Reel of the Royal Scots with The Bees of Maggieknockater and Cherrybank Gardens as extras.
