Twenty Four Country Dances for the Year 1812

Printed and sold by J. Gray, Bury St Edmunds


Index of dances and tunes


The key signature given below is as in the original.


When you click through to the individual tune, you will find both the original page (with dance instructions) and, where appropriate, a transcription in a key more likely to find favour with contemporary folk instrumentation. This is a work in progress, and all should be up here before the end of 2012.


If anyone recognises the tunes as versions of something else, or has any additional information, we would love to hear from you- please email us.
