The music “Red House” appears on an album by The Broadside Band entitled “English Country Dances: From Playford’s Dancing Master 1651-1703”. The Strathspey Server website gives this dance a date of 1731. Queen Anne, born in 1665, the younger daughter of James II, reigned from 1702 until her death in 1714, and was the last Stuart monarch. This dance may be associated with her but quite probably that is an erroneous suggestion!
