Cam-French - Traditional French music and dancing in Cambridge, UK

"Cam-French" organises occasional French music and dance sessions, and has a mailing list for the announcement and discussion of traditional French music and dancing sessions held in and near Cambridge, UK. We have a "welcome to Cam-French" leaflet which might be of interest.

Covid-19 has disrupted our plans - watch this space for future events. Hope to see you there!

The sessions

Our occasional sessions are held on a Saturday or Sunday. Upcoming dates:

Sadly nothing is booked at the moment but we are investigating the possibilities for socially-distanced music sessions.

We're also listed in Webfeet which is worth a look for other events.

The music

Some of the tunes which have been played at the sessions are available in PDF format (and in ABC format). You can view the file with Acrobat Reader (a free download). Yes, the music is incomplete... more tunes will be added over time. A couple of past programmes are available to help you decide what to practise! April, May, June, August 2005; March, September 2006; and March 2009. (MC=Massif Central books, PD=Les Panards Dansant book, OB=On Bouge books)
