This evening, I am presenting some images of a Scottish Country Dancing demonstration provided at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, Glasgow. We were in Glasgow so we popped in to have a look.

This form of dancing originated in the 18th century. It is social dancing which involves groups of 6-10 people who dance to various reels, jigs and strathspeys with music provided by accordions, flutes or piano but rarely bagpipes.

In the event we witnessed there was both demonstrations by experts and opportunities for the public to join in. A nice event to round off the day-and tour.
