Da Fustra began when Douglas and Cecil, then studying in Edinburgh, got together to play their native Shetland music. Nearly twenty years later the impetus is stronger than ever, and Da Fustra maintains the momentum and style that is the Shetland Ceilidh.

Ceilidh dances in Shetland idiom are usually danced three times through, and the Boston Two-step always features at least three times in an evening! The dancers catch their breath with the slow waltzes, including one from neighbouring Scandinavia, before hurtling themselves back into the mealstrom of the Two-step and the Quadrilles!

Da Fustra's blend of traditional tunes and dances, and swing-along, sing-along sets, turns any evening's dance into a real swell party!
