From the Library: Victorian Social Dance

Today’s pro­gram includes music from the Eng­lish coun­try dance and Amer­i­can con­tra dance tra­di­tions, as well as some tan­go, brass-band ball­room music and, of course, a sprin­kling of Scan­di­na­vian waltzes, pol­skas, and schot­tis­ches.

Radio Riel pro­duces “From the Library” in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Otenth Pader­born.
