Bob Davidson devised this dance after listening to a tune by the same name performed by Matt Molloy. He suggests using the recording “The Double Diamond Strathspey” from the Muriel Johnstone & Keith Smith album “Vintage Goldring” (which is quite slow!). Matt Molloy is an Irish flautist who won the All-Ireland Flute Championship when only 17 years old. Originally from County Roscommon, he now owns a pub (Matt Molloy’s) in Westport, County Mayo. He has been a member of The Bothy Band, Planxty and The Chieftains and released 10 solo albums between 1976 and 2007 including Heathery Breeze in 1985.
