Dance InformationThe title of this dance, Willie's Rare And Willie's Fair, comes from the anonymous traditional Scottish Willie's Drowned In Yarrow - Song.
O Willie's rare, and Willie's fair,
And Willie's wondrous bonnie;
And Willie hecht to marry me,
Gin e'er he married ony.
O, Willie's Fair, And Willie's Rare, From Glen Collection Of Printed Music, Minstrelsy Of Scotland, Page 183
