Dear Joe

The most convenient source I've found for "The Veleta" etc. is a small
booklet produced by 'The Occasionals' - a Scottish ceilidh band par
excellence. The booklet (and cassette and CD) is called "Footnotes"

and contains full instructions for

The Gay Gordons
The Eva Three Step
The St Bernard's Waltz
The Dashing White Sergeant
The Military Two Step
The Canadian Barn Dance
The Pride of Erin Waltz
Strip the Willow
The Britannia Two Step
Waltz Country Dance
The Cumberland Square Eight
The Highland Scottische
The Swedish Masquerade
The Virginia Reel
The Foula Reel
The Veleta
The Eightsome Reel

probably obtainable from TAC or SNDC

or direct from

Bonskeid Music
4 The Steils
Edinburgh
EH10 5XD
Scotland

fax: +44 (0) 131 447 8889
tel: +44 (0) 131 447 0991

Usual disclaimer applies but I've been to "Occasionals" ceilidhs even
when I was injured just to listen and savour the atmosphere.

hope this helps

cheers
