In the fall of 2018, UK caller Trevor Monson was invited to lead the Hands Across the Water English country dance weekend held in Victoria, BC. We all enjoyed the time together. And soon after, Trev and I started talking of a “hands across the ocean” project. He would choose the dances, mostly his own, and The Dancehall Players would record the tunes.

The result of this collaborative venture is in your hands! Some of the melodies are familiar to us; some new. We are pleased to share all of them - beautiful waltzes, lively reels and a jaunty jig - with our music and dance friends in many countries. We invite you to join us again, listening and dancing to Unexpected Dances!

The Dancehall Players:

  • Gregory Brown: flute, guitar
  • Aaron Ellingsen: mandolin, violin
  • Susan Larkin: recorders, violin, vocals
  • Ann Schau: piano
  • Barrie Webster: banjo, cello
  • Lael Whitehead: guitar, percussion, recorders, melodica, vocal
