The Half Onesome Reel Demonstration During The Lonesome Reel - YouTube Scottish Country Dancing Video
Performance Of The Lonesome Reel - Robert Lockhart, Toronto, 2020.
Music By The Marian Anderson Band.

Video Notes
This shows the set with the solitary dancer facing down, toward the camera.
Note the placing of the markers for the starting places of the dancer and the three ghosts.
There are slight deviations from the instructions which probably arose because the performer was helpfully responding to an urgent request; had his opposite been a physical dancer rather than a ghost, these would have been corrected automatically.

  1-2   When dancing with 3 ghosts, follow a path which would not impede them.
