Music lockdown challenge

Lockdown Challenge

What did NZ’s musicians do when they were unable to play for your dancing?

They wrote music!

Lynne Scott challenged them by sending them the first few bars of a tune and inviting them to complete it.

The categories included a strathspey, a jig, a reel, a waltz and a slow air.

There were 47 entries and here are the winners, chosen by the musicians themselves.
