Susan McFaydyen with sister Shona McFaydyen playing The Chequered Court

Shona and I have put together this video for the dance The Chequered Court, we thought it appropriate as the chequered court has been a meeting place at University Hall in St Andrews for dancers all over the world when attending the Summer School held there annually. Hoping we will all be able to gather there next summer.In the meantime enjoy the music. 🎼🎻🎹🎼
