Scope and content

For 40 years Don Rouse developed and ran a Barn Dance band which at one time ran hundreds of dances a year both in the UK and abroad, and all the while Don was running a dairy unit. This account is written by Don and apart from documenting the history of barn dancing for 40 years from 1974 it all co-incidentally wonderfully documents the changes in society that feel to have taken much of the fun out of life. It's a wonderful read for anyone interested in social history.
