Online liner notes on Linda's Schottische

       Linda’s Schottische is a tune I’ve had for several years, going back to a now defunct Harrisburg-based band named Tea & Spice.  I don’t know who wrote it, for sure, or who Linda is but it’s a great melody that brought out my Norwegian / Swedish heritage a bit.  Everyone liked it so much we all wanted a piece of it; thus, everyone took a lead.  We played it a little down tempo for Civil War dancers who like to do a dance called “The Danish Dance” to this type of tune.
