Tonight very much became bransle night... our new set comprising:
- Washerwomans bransle
- Scottish bransle
Discovered that there are a couple of different versions of Washerwoman's bransle floating about, so we spent a bit of time on a 'compare and contrast' session. Nothing concrete decided yet but it tentatively seems that both versions could be compatible - at some point I will investigate this further - again this may be a new year project.
Successfully played the whole set by the end of the night, twice through each tune and straight into the next without pause.
