Good music: Duke of Perth encore, Terpsichore, Caledonian Muse, or any good pipe tune.

Devised after reading a wonderful feature in the Washington Post about the Christmas Ba' game on Kirkwall, Orkney (see, to evoke the up and down energy of the event. I called it Uppies and Doonies until I found out there was already a dance by that name. So I stole the Post headline, The Old Ba' Game.
