Extra info
This dance has been revised ...

This dance has been revised. Originally, in the Summer Collection 1988, it had 32 bars. John Drewry revised and republished it in Bankhead Book 1 with the comment: "The original dance was 32 bars long ... There was always a problem with entering the repeats of the dance. I have added the extra bars to make it possible to repeat the dance without difficulty"
