This dance was devised  about 1968 and dedicated to Jennifer Wilson of Elgin when  published in The Silver City Book. The suggested tunes are "Tae Gar Ye Loup"  by Drummond Cook (who unfortunately recorded it as a 4 x 48 strathspey), and also "The Duchess Tree" by J Scott Skinner. John Drewry’s adopted city of Aberdeen is known by several names and in 1950 a guidebook was published titled “Aberdeen the Silver City with the Golden Sands”. Gilbert Summers (http://www.scotlandinaweek.com/Aberdeen-the-Silver-City.html) owns a copy of this wonderful book and tells us of the city it promotes.
