If I remembered correctly, the dance "The Wind that Shakes the Barley" was
devised by Dothie recently (i.e., post formation of RSCDS), not a
traditional dance (it is, of course, in the traditional form). Is there
another traditional dance with the same name? The tune certainly is a
traditional tune and old favorite going back long time.
