Dance Musician Resources

Live music is always a great addition to any dance experience, whether in a class or a revel. On this page you will find resources for sheet music and players for your dance band. If you have any suggestions for new links or would like to be listed on the musician roster, please email the guild steward.

For more information on music in the kingdom, you may contact Lady Fiona MacLachlan, the steward of the Meridian Minstrels' Guild
