622 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE A SUNDAY DANCE Faeroe history in 200 verses, sung to one tune, without instrumental accompaniment, is the music for the native "Paul Jones." While they sing throughout the night, the dancers shuffle from left to right, sometimes slow, sometimes fast. Women are admitted to the party, but usually keep to their own sector of the circle. MEN CLING TO OLD FAEROE STYLES MORE STEADFASTLY THAN THE WOMEN Shoes with buckles, black knee breeches, and short jacket, decorated with rows of bright buttons, and a soft wool "liberty" cap striped red and dark blue or black, are the vogue for Sabbath and holidays. The man on the left wears the workaday sheepskin slippers tied with woolen strings.
