Thread Name: Tune Req: Perth Glovers March
Subject: RE: Tune Req: Perth Glovers March
I just asked Colin Messer of North British Sword about this. Andrew Kennedy, their leader, has recreated the dance. Here's Colin's reply:

"When I looked into this some years ago googling gave references to a Perth Glovers March, but I've never found the music. There is no record of the music played for the sword dance. We use a Scottish Buttered Peas that to my ear is completely different to the English Buttered Peas."

I don't know if this means he didn't search the archives or not.
