With thanks to Jim Rae ...

With thanks to Jim Rae whose ‗Dancing in the Cuckoo‘s Nest‘ inspired bars 9 to 16.

Devised in July 2009.

The dance recalls the miraculous landing on 15 January 2009 of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River, just a mile or two south of our home in Edgewater.

Music Rakes of Mallow. A suitable recording is ‗Cromarties Rant‘, RSCDS Books 31 & 32, Alistair Wood and his Scottish Country Dance Band, track 10.
