'Country Dancing' by Nigel Williams

This play was first performed at The Barbican, London in 1984. It tells the story of Cecil Sharp's collecting songs and dances from villagers and in particular of a fiddler called Ted who will not play a tune for Sharp due to connections to a dark episode in the history of the village.
