|SCOTTISH STEPDANCE COMPANY
New, exciting music and dance ideas which have to be heard
to be believed! The onstage atmosphere is one of fun and
is very much based around the informality of a village ceilidh,
whilst still retaining the professionalism and presentation
of a performance.
Stepdance is an old Scottish percussive danceform which
shares its roots with Irish hard shoe dancing (pre-competition).
After the clearances it had all but vanished in Scotland
until recent years when our links with Cape Breton began
to be re-established.
Our Music is very strongly centred around the west coast
traditions of gaelic song, piping and fiddle playing, with
the majority of the band coming from the highlands. There's
a bit of everything from our tradition on this album - from
tunes and songs that are hundreds of years old, to the modern
tunes being played by the young folk!
