Step with Annette Album (DOWNLOAD)
The "Step with Annette" CD is an excellent addition to the step dance music portfolio.
There has been, up to now, a distinct lack of music resources for the old style step dancer. This CD will fill a gap and be welcomed by both dancers and tutors alike.
A nice selection of jig, reel, slip jig, hornpipe, and set dance tunes are played at both practice and performance speed.
Mark's solo fiddle is a perfect accompaniment, allowing the dancer to bring out the rhythm of the tune.
"Visionary and inspirational" – Mary Fox
“The CD provides me with a very accessible resource for my weekly dance class" - Joe McGuiggan
Also of use if you are learning an instrument as you can play along to core repertoire at a nice steady speed.
