    Re: Islay

    I have found in the past that sometimes this kind of situation arises 
    when someone pinches and alters an existing dance for some local 
    occasion and little is heard of it again.
    A few years ago I was asked to call a "Fair Isle Jig" at a dance, 
    couldn't find it anywhere and by anywhere I mean contacting musicians in 
    Fair Isle etc. to no avail.  Ten minutes before the dance started I was 
    handed a crib by the dance organiser someone had just taken the Virginia 
    Reel, decided to play it to a jig and call it the Fair Isle Jig.
