Dance Information

This strathspey was devised for Holly Boyd's husband, Don Nemiroff, on his birthday.

The deviser has named the figure in the first 8 bars The Maurice Progression. It was inspired by the dance Maurice (published in Dunsmuir Dances) written by Gary Thomas in memory of Maurice Whitby of the Montreal Branch.
