Lady Peak’s Strathspey is a John Drewry dance, published as a leaflet, and originating from a teaching visit to Canada. the following is from John’s notes to the dance: “Lady Peak is a mountain on the east side of the Fraser River in British Columbia. It is slightly higher than Mount Cheam (2107m) but when viewed from the Fraser Valley, it is partially hidden by Mount Cheam.” According to the Canadian Mountain Encyclopedia: “From the Chilliwack area, according to Fraser River Indian culture, Lady Peak looks like the head of a dog. The dog is the companion of the Old Woman, Cheam.”
