Re: Scottish Dance
Your selection is from a film called Scotland through her country dances, if I seem to remember correctly. I have a copy of it but it is packed away somewhere. I believe it was made featureing the dem team of the Edinburgh Branch some time in the 60´s. Someone may want to check with Mary Murray on this as I believe she was either a member at the time or a former member, I forget which. All of the dances in the film were RSCDS published, and they were done in a costume appropriate to the date of the dance and in appropriate locations. I remember Red House was done in 17c costumes, no kilts, and both men and women had wigs and high heeled shoes. Re Simon´s comment, I don´t think this was a McNab dance as I seem to remember all the dances being RSCDS, I could of course be wrong on this.
