David Le Brocque, a fellow member of the Caledonians SCD club in Brisbane,
has written a number of dances that are gaining popularity amongst we
banana-benders (inhabitants of Queensland). He has agreed that they be
published to a wider audience on the Strathspey list, asking only that
people let him know what they think of them. David does not have email, but
I will naturally relay any response posted to the list or sent to me
privately. Should you wish to contact him directly, his address is:
