A jig given to me by my mandolin teacher, but I find that it sits well on whistle too. The internet tells me this tune is a contradance from New England.

X:1 and X:2 are identical, but X:2 has the repeat and 1st/2nd endings written out.

Re: Dusty Bob’s

I learned this tune when I was playing piano irregularly for a local contra dance/folk dance group many years ago.
