Released in 2001, celebration of the 350th anniversary of John Playford’s collection ‘The English Dancing Master’, this album draws upon the Pauls’ extensive experience as dance musicians.
Whilst all the tracks are at the speed and length for dancing, the sumptuous arrangements and beautiful production by Robert Harbron ensure that this is a delightful listening experience.

‘One thing is for certain the combination of fiddle, oboe, bassoon, accordion and trumpet certainly give the tunes an authentic feel and as a consequence, the respect they deserve. A winner all the way!’ – Folk on Tap
