Another solo dance adaptation for today, this one inspired by Debbie Jackson, who played Smithy Hill this morning on Facebook Live.
Singly Still (Sharon Green, 3/25/20)
Tune: Smithy Hill by Brian Jenkins [A1, A2 ad lib, 2 beats to the bar]
One-person shortways set
With thanks to the late Tom Cook for his dance Smithy Hill, long a favorite, and to Debbie Jackson for her playing of the tune.

3-4 Set left and right
