Dance Information

Kynoch Of Bucksburn was written to celebrate the ruby wedding anniversary of Jim and Kathleen Kynoch in 1993.

The deviser, John Drewry, also had connections to Bucksburn, a suburb of Aberdeen. He had moved there after taking up employment in the mid 1960s at Aberdeen University.

Once a market village, in 1975 Bucksburn became part of the City of Aberdeen.

Bucksburn takes its name from the stream, the Bucks Burn, that flows through it. The water course of Bucks Burn to the Don had at one time many working mills including a meal-mill at Bucksburn House.
