Devised 22/11/2011. This was inspired by working through Hugh Foss's fugues this year, particularly the fugues in the Glendorrach leaflets. Foss's idea of taking a theme (here clearly back to back) and working the whole dance around it was really interesting to our group. Thanks to the group, especially John Homes and Tom Cole, for suggestions which made the last 4 bars reasonable. This particular dance was inspired by Stroangassel. Stroangassel is a hill in Scotland with a fairy ring. Stranfasket Hill is very close to Strongassel. Hence the title. I would recommend a steady 4 by 48 jig with strong 2 bar phrases.
