As a musician, I'm sorry but I'm getting on my High Horse again.   

I'm not saying that this is the case in this instance but, as a musician, it is very difficult sometimes to put together sets of tunes for dances if insufficient time is given, especially if you want the original tune.    The night before or even a couple of nights before is not enough time to put together a dance set, let alone several and then practice so that they are good enough for a performance.  Unless perhaps if you are retired or a professional musician.    Not all of us are George Meikles' , Muriel Johnstons and the like who have years of experience and have 100s of sets prepared and practiced.    As you may gather this is a gripe of mine.

A......   this is not a dig at you if you read this.

Roddy

Hello,

Probably because they didn't know the correct tune!
