Dance InformationThe title of this dance, Maggie Lauder, comes from Maggie Lauder - Song written by Francis Sempill of Beltrees who lived from around 1616 to 1685.
Wha wadna be in love
Wi' bonnie Maggie Lauder?
A piper met her gaun to Fife,
And speir'd what was't they ca'd her;
Eight scornfully she answer'd him,
Begone you hallanshaker!
Jog on your gate, you bladderskate,
My name is Maggie Lauder.
'Maggie Lauder' is a traditional Scottish song about a piper.
Maggie Lauder, From Scottish Orpheus, Printed Music, Hamilton And Muller, c. 1865
