This volume traces the evolution of Scottish Country Dancing from its origins in the English countryside through the courts of the Tudors, 17th and 18th century society in Scotland and thence to the population at large. The application of the rich tapestry of Scottish musical and dance traditions to the Country Dance transformed it into the accomplished form known today. How this came about, its near disappearance in the 20th century, subsequent revival and ongoing development are a triumph of the evolutionary processes that have shaped it and given substance to its popularity around the globe.
