  • A previous President of The Round, William Palmer, left behind him a booklet entitled Palmer's Pocket Playford. This booklet is a very useful reference for callers of Playford dances. Paper copies can be obtained at meetings of The Round.

  • The Round regularly dance a style of dance known as Kentucky Running Set (KRS). Hugh has written a book on the subject, available here online or at meetings of The Round.

  • The Country Dance Book, by Cecil Sharp et al, which started it all. Original material from the guy who revived English Country Dancing. Some sections which are still in copyright are omitted.

  • This site has a list of web sites that provide dance instructions.
