"An eightsome reel played by Orkney Strathspey and Reel Society, recorded in about 1955/6 later transferred to 35mm optical track with clear picture and gradually painted, over the years. Eights of different things - figures, antlers, or sometimes just blobs in tartan colours - dance their way through the figure of the reel" - MTPainted direct on film by Margaret Tait.Painted Eightsome images courtesy of Scottish Screen Archive.
