Notes from The Johnsonville Collection:

Devised 27th May 2014. The Sheepskin Hey is a similar figure from traditional English Country Dancing, in dances like Picking Up Sticks. This is about 23 of the figure. My wife Kristin, and I, learned of the figure whilst dancing with a medieval dance group in Cambridge (UK), the Capriol Dancers.

Recommended tune is “Miss Gayton’s Hornpipe”. A suitable recording is “The Sound of Harris” by Andrew Rankine and his Band.

The dance is given to Moggie Grayson who found my fish kilt pin, which I lost at the local Viking Ball, and mailed it home to me, along with the following poem:

On Finding Rod’s Kilt Pin

Said the fishy to the tablecloth
Please look down here at me
I jumped off Rodney’s kilt and landed way below his knee
Please pick me up and save me
From an agonizing fate
I could b e crushed ’neath heavy feet
And then I would b e “late"
O, happy day, and bless the gentle hand that made me fly
Adventure now awaits me
In a postman’s bag to lie
En route to Downey’s household
And reunion so gay
Please pin me tight and off we’ll go
To dance another day.

Moggie Grayson, 19 May, 2014
