Dance: The Hannays Return to Sorbie

Clan member Gerard Hanney sent us the following Scottish Country Dance created by Helen Russell.  It is intended to be performed while accompanied by The Hannays Return to Sorbie. You can listen to the chief playing this tune on the smallpipes here.

Gerard adds that Ms. Russell “composed the dance at my request when she came to Luxembourg to teach at a SCD workshop. She incorporated a H & S into the formation of the dance ( when seen from above ).”


The file can be downloaded here.

Gerard also sent this animation demonstrating the steps:
