Not sure about Neil M Grant but Neil Grant the composer was I believe the pen name
of Ian MacFadyen (not sure about the spelling) the producer of the "White Heather
Club" shows who also wrote with Andy Stewart - "Lassie Come and Dance" and "Donald
Where's Your Troosers" have his name after them for example. By coincidence John
Renton played his tune "The Stornaway Sailor" on "Take the Floor" last saturday.
