musicians at dance event


BBC Radio Scotland’s Take The Floor will be back tomorrow evening with 2 more hours of Scottish music and the first hour is led by the Liam Stewart Scottish Dance Band with Liam's debut broadcast. 

As mentioned before, we’ve been in touch with presenter, Gary Innes and producer, Jennifer Cruickshank who have shared that we can look forward to Liam leading us musically through The Circassian Circle and The Blooms of Bon Accord. In the 2nd hour, Take The Floor have included a special dance of the week for all Scottish Country Dancers with a recording from Colin Dewar of Postie’s Jig.

Listeners can also look forward to a concert set from Full Tilt - Allan Small, Gemma Donald, Manus McGuire and Bryan Nicolson.

All dancers can contact Gary and Jennifer to request dances, favourite recordings and tunes by emailing takethefloor@bbc.co.uk or by writing to Take The Floor, BBC Beechgrove Terrace, Aberdeen AB15 5ZT. 

They’d love to hear from you.

Going forward, Jennifer and the team will be keeping dancers' requests to the fore, as we share dancing and music news from around the globe with them.
