Anselm writes:
| You can get a book by the late Nan Main called `The Ashley Album', which
| contains music for a bunch of Miscellany (actually `99 more SCD') dances
| including `Sandy o'er the Lea'. The suggested tune is `Kincorth Brig' by
| Adam Allardyce. There is a school of thought which considers the music
| in this book at least semi-official for the dances in question -- and
| indeed Kincorth Brig, a nice tune for sure, is what Muriel Johnstone
| chose as the lead tune for the single published recording of Sandy that
| exists -- but then of course Susie is just as free to pick `Auld Luckie'
| (another nice and popular tune) as Nan M. is to pick `Kincorth Brig'.

Hey, if it's a nice tune, as you say, you should share it with
the rest of us, too ...

What if the Hoky Poky really IS what it's all about?
