The Giants Band plays a selection of European folk music. There are specific tunes for each of the five dances:
- Jordi’s dance – Inana He
- Manresa (waltz) – Mazurka Limousin
- Kelham – 3 bourree tunes (or 2 if we’re doing just half the dance!)
- The BIGG dance – Nonsuch / La Morisque
- The Fountain dance – Sherwood Forest / La Belle Halimande
We also have a number of set tunes that work well together for parades and processions, as well as for occasional ‘music only’ spots (usually occurring when the porters need a rest!) and a few tunes that we’re working on playing for our own amusement. Suggestions for new music are always welcome.
