This is exactly the sort of dancing that you will find at London Barndance.

Fiddlin' Around - Bowing Out

300 people gathered at Cecil Sharp House on 8th December 2007 for Fiddlin' Around's final performance. Malcolm, Andrew, Bob and Brian generated even more musical energy than usual: this was their 23rd appearance at London Barndance having made their debut at our event on 8th May 1998.

Rhodri Davies called the dances - mainly contras with a few other forms for variety, and even managed to fit in a grid square with over 200 people on the floor!
