Wideford Hill

This is a jig (traditional) from Orkney arranged by Phil Rowe and included on the Nottingham Folk Music
Database. I don’t think it is that familiar in Orkney. No connection with waltz given the same name.

In places it really reminds me of the nursery rhyme "Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross".
