This dance, devised in 1976 and initially demonstrated by the Pershore SCD Club where John danced, was published in Imperial Book Vol.3 (ISTD of which John Bayly was a member) and the original tune for this dance is “Johnnie in Nether Mains” as recorded for “None So Pretty”. Colin Dewar has now released a recording specifically for this dance on his “Special Requests Vol.8” CD.
