Just a bit of trivia about that dance and the name of the tune from a
non-musician:

As it says in Book 35 the dance was devised by Roz Huxley and inscribed to
her father (a real gentleman) who was MC of First Fortnight Ceilidhs at
Summer School for 26 years. The tune is called the Ceilidh Umbrella
because he always carried an umbrella to the ceilidhs as his trademark. It
is a popular dance in the UK and is always danced to the original tune,
with which it is identified.
