This light programme piece uses as its basis a popular Scottish folk tune called The Dashing White Sergeant. No composer is credited with the tune although, as early as 1884, it was thought to have been written by Henry Bishop, and there is a theory that there was a certain unwillingness to acknowledge that such a popular ‘Scottish’ tune was written by an Englishman.

The lyrics were written by Sir Hugh Roberton and include the line ‘Dance away the hours together’. There are many allusions to different types of dance in this piece, some traditional and others popular, and we travel around from Scotland to Siam and Spain.

Dance Away is definitely a fun piece and can be guaranteed to add entertainment to any programme.
