Extra info
The following corrections were included ...

The following corrections were included on a loose sheet "Notes on Dances by Bob Grant June 1996", when Book 39 was first sold in the Summer School bookshop:

9-16 Reel across is between 1st and 2nd positions

21-24 Use first setting step to advance into the circle. Pull right shoulders back quickly and tightly

Tom Kerr choreographed this dance for his own and Christine Dawson's wedding celebration.

Note this extract from the 'Cape Town Wedding' instructions page of the 'Book of Tom's Dances': "Unfortunately the marriage did not last, hence the dance Fare Thee Well with the formation Untie the Knot."
