This was written by Jean Byron Williams and was danced for the first time at Bedford Tuesday Playford on 10 January 2023.
Note that when Jean introduced this dance she gave it the temporary name "Heather Bound", but soon afterwards she settled instead on "The Broome Blows Bonnie".
Duple minor with 1st couples improper.
"She's Sweetest When She's Naked". This is a tune in 3/4 time that was published by James Oswald in 1741. The meaning of the phrase may, disappointingly, be "I like my whiskey neat". The tune is also known, more prosaically, as "Miss Faw's Minuet".
A score is available at abc notation.
