Letter to Secretary of Highland Strathspey & Reel Society, 1936

Strathspey and Reel Societies have been a common feature of the traditional music scene in Scotland since the formation of the first society in Edinburgh in 1881. The Highland branch was formed in 1903. One of its founder members, Alexander Grant (also known as 'Battan') was leader of the society right up until his death in 1942, a period of almost forty years.

In this letter dated 31 August 1936, from the Inverness Town Clerk, J. Cameron to the society's secretary, John Fraser, a request is being made for the society's attendance at three evening concerts arranged by the council's Entertainments Committee
