A revision of the dance written at Summer CDH 2018 for the band Wake Up Robin. The original suffered from a kitchen sink mentality and I think this dance is nicely tightened up comparatively. I'm leaving the original up because it might still be enjoyable in the right circumstances, however I expect this dance will be much friendlier to typical Contra dance circumstances without sacrificing the core of what made the original interesting.
