Make up a 4 tune generic set. If it is 8x32 play it the usual
1-2-3-4-2-3-4-1 way, if it turns out it is 4x32 play it just 1-2-3-1. You
can tell when they line up and prompt the dancers.
I can't had the same experience a few years ago and learned that there are 2
dances. Lady Catherine Bruce and Lady C Bruce. Can't find the set just
now.
Cheers,
Sylvia Miskoe, Concord NH USA
