This dance was written by Doris Weller, one of the early members of the
Boston branch. and one of the first Americans to go to St. Andrews to get
her certificate. (Miss Florence Adams was her candidates-class teacher,
and Doris was my candidates class teacher in 1961.)

Doris wrote this dance in honor of Jack McKelvie, who encouraged Miss
Milligan to come to the North American continent by paying for her plane
ticket to Boston. Jack worked quietly behind the scenes to encourage the
spread of Scottish country dancing over here in the 1950s.

The dance is a gracious strathspey and can be done by intermediates. It
is in Pilling.

have a great time at your party,
