Suggested tune: The Forth Bridge by W. Blythe.

This dance was devised in June 2014 on the night of a full moon when the beginner’s class only had three dancers plus the instructor. The class had been learning Delvine Side; I think the inspiration is clear. A student, Jodi McEdward, coined the name. It is written as a 6x32 strathspey so that the standing couple always defines the set during the double figures of eight. If numbers do not allow, by all means, dance it as an 8x32 strathspey.
