Highland Strathspey & Reel Society Announcement, 8 Nov 1927

In October 1927, the Highland Strathspey and Reel Society received a anonymous donation of £10 in aid of a strathspey and reel competition. Certain conditions concerning the competition were specified by the donor which the society felt they were unable to meet. This newspaper announcement (dated 8th November 1927), from the society's secretary, John Fraser, requests that the donor get in touch with the society to discuss the matter further.

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
