Country Dance Book - index of dances

This page is a cumulative index to all the dances from Cecil Sharp’s Country Dance Book that are available on this website. For an account of what is included and what is not, see the introductory Country Dance Book page.

To find the sheet music for a dance, follow the MUSIC link on the dance notation page.

NOTE: There are numerous links in these files to the original Playford sources of the dances and music at the site www.izaak.unh.edu. These links do not work at present, though attempts are being made to reinstate them. If you wish to get to these pages before that happens, try replacing http://www.izaak/stuff by https://web.archive.org/web/20190624132046/http://www.izaak/stuff. Alternatively, the original Playford sources can also be found at Scott Pfitzinger’s site http://playforddances.com.
