Original tune by David South (\251 2012)

Composed for the Scottish Country Dance of the same name devised by Julia Grant of Melbourne and dedicated to a small group of dedicated dancers in the town of Buxton, located in central Victoria.

Interesting that a dance created in Australia for a group of folk in a place named after an English town can be classified as a Scottish country dance.
