Andy Peterson · May 29, 2018, 4:43 a.m.

If you like pas-de-basque this is for YOU! Kind of fun, some weirdly slow bits, like the transition into the square set. But could be good if you mix in some highland setting steps.

Pas de Basque festival

Lara Friedman-Shedlov · Aug. 17, 2012, 9:51 p.m.

64 bars of pas de Basque was never so much fun! Great tune, too.
