Sarah Mac Donald (Mac Phee) was a great friend of Dan R Mac Donald’s. Dan R wrote the reel “The Red Shoes” for her (which the Red Shoe Pub is named after). Sarah lived on Back Street in Mabou until she as 16 and then moved away. She loved to dance whether it was highland dancing or step dancing and she always wore different shoes, including her red shoes, that Dan R wrote the reel for.
