Northwoods has a great dancing history. Master Robyyan and Master
Christopher hail from there, as does the group who did the "Rose and
Nefyr" dance manual. And they still have an active practice. My
(music) apprentice lives up there.

That's a good reason for posting lists of what was danced at events,
by the way... helps record that kind of information. I was just
looking at some descriptions from 1971-1973 of dancing in Carolingia...
fascinating history.

There's a 9 CD set, actually. I sold all of the ones with labels at
Pennsic, but I will hopefully get some more labels made soon.
