I have found my copy of The Inverness Reel embedded in the HD so
copy it here. There is no recorded originator of the dance so as
far as I know there are no problems in copying it.
We demonstrated it regularly but made sure we were followed by
someone else doing a solo swords or similar so we could recover,
especially if dancing in the sunshine !!! It's fabulous to a good
piper. Needless to say it was many years ago !
Wish I could do it now.
Happy Dancing Enjoy
