Dedicated to Leslie Dawes of Gleneagles Scottish Country Dance Club, West Vancouver and Vancouver Branch.

Misprint. The dance description in the Highlander Collection vol 1 says that this is a Strathspey, but the music is a Jig. ETF 30 oct 2011

Malcolm Brown writes on the Strathspey List:

"The dance was first published in the Vancouver Branch Ruby Collection in 2005, where the accompanying tune is Gentle Shepherd.

It was then published in Simon's own collection of dances as part of the Branxholm Hall Suite / Lady in Red Collection in 2007, where again the tune is Gentle Shepherd, and where Simon says "the dance was inspired by, and written to the beautiful tune The Gentle Shepherd as recorded on St Andrews Ball by Ron Kerr", and where it is also described as a "32 bar slow jig"."

(As slow jigs go, the Ron Kerr recording in question is not particularly slow.)
