Live Circle Dance with Brian Steere

To sing or dance with presence and passion is to become unobstructed within the movement of relationship.

To trust and be opened by inspiration, allows the song from the heart.

The music that comes forth is the mover of hearts, minds and bodies - as one.

The call to life is ours to share by invitation and acceptance - in freedom and peace.

Resources for Live Music for Circle dance

I create these resources to enable me to share live music for dance. I share them freely in support of live music for dance and in the trust that the gift extends. Let me know if they are helpful to you.

My first priority in making them available is a practical resource - they are a work of love but may also contain error, inconsistency or unintended acknowledged sources. Join with me if you have information to share.

The Lyrics listed here also serve to indicate my current live repertoire as a Troubadour for Live dance. You can download this list as a pdf file. Right click and select approprate command to download rather than view in browser. Download

The resources on this site are not for inclusion in commercial or other publications without my permission. I would appreciate links and acknowledgements - if material that is my work is used on your site - Thank you. Your feedback and support is welcome! I hardly know you are ever here except I do meet people who say they appreciate this site.

For any musician wanting a collection of circle dance music notation and arrangements contact Stefan Freedman for Moving Centre. Also Mandy DeWinter's Music Books

Free online resources of scores and lyrics are available via Birgitt Karlson. More lyrics in the MIT Folk Dance Club Songbook. Dunav has some lyrics as well as video. www.hebrewsongs.com speaks for itself.

Info about the Lyrics and Score Lyric and score INFO    Info about the sound (mp3) samples.

I have made an alphabetical index of scores from Mandy's 4 Books and Stefan's Book so that you can quickly see which book(s) -if any - a dance tune is in. You can download a copy HERE. here. (R-click & select download).

See Site Revision history page to track recent changes to the site - including this page.

    It is a work of love to bring these songs alive and into my repertoire to share with dancers.

I share of my work freely toward enabling more live music and song for living dance as and when I can make time to do so. Your feedback is always welcome.

    If you desire you can be the first to make a donation as an encouragement or thankyou! - Brian

You can also support by inviting me to your area to teach and to sing.

Another way of helping to support me in this work is to consider buying cards or prints that I make from my photography:
