Ceilidh in Geneva 16th November!

In Grand Saconnex, organised by the Scottish church of Geneva. Brilliant fun! Besides the beer and Whisky, it's a great evening of singing and mainly dancing, with top musicians and a caller who will tell you exactly what to do, although after a few drinks, you don't really care where your feet are supposed to be! 30 CHF the ticket, I will give you contact details of person to book with if you are interested. For the poor buggers who don't know what a ceilidh looks like, here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62sim5knB-s&t=38s and for those who have been to a few ceilidhs, you'll have a good laugh at Danny Bhoy's take on it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1msu8iQT3kw

<<some steps are reminiscent of American square dancing>>
Why does this sound so wrong to me?

If you go slow on the perfume, he might put you up for a night.

I should have checked out your links, I found this by accident while watching Billy Connolly on YouTube.
