Salmon Tails

This garland dance for four was originally written by former side member Hilary Carter especially to use the well-known Northumbrian rant tune of that name. This tune may have been originally Irish, and called 'Freedom for Ireland' or 'Saorsacd Na N-Eirinn', and is within a set of dance tunes called 'The Seige of Ennis'. However it is also found as 'Banks of Inverness' so may be Scottish! It is not related to the Scottish strathspey of the same name. The dance has subsequently been amended by Gail Olivant and others.
