Tommy's Tarbukas and some Seán Nós

Well, just when you thought I couldn’t get more talented… Hey! What are you doing with that?? That’s my phone!
Brothers anyway :roll_eyes: I’m not quite that arrogant lol.
So I’ve been learning Seán Nós dance for the past month or so, and I finally got a video of it! I’ve been really enjoying it!

That was great, both the picking & the dancing!

Makes me think of buck dancers. Wondering what’s the main difference between the two types. Is it the music, the steps, both?

We’ve got several buck dancers around here at the fiddlers & bluegrass conventions. My favorite one is this guy (vid below). He ALWAYS wears 2 different socks, and I’ve seen him dancing for HOURS!! Bummer didnt get to see him this year cuz the festival was canceled.

This vid is not one of mine (I couldn’t find it, & I’ve got several :confounded:), it was taken at Summertown TN, a couple hours away:

Thanks y’all!!

I’m not entirely sure, but I think it’s partly the music and partly the steps are a bit different. But it is a similar style for sure

Shes great! I’ve seen her in Nashville before, dancing & fiddling on the street.

Thanks! I have been a fan of her for a while now, and actually we have a few mutual friends. She does more old time buck dancing, while I’m learning more the Irish tradition
