Flower Of The Town

This jig was composed by Sid Hibbert, originally from Edinburgh and now based in the Durham area (NE England). Sid is principally a banjoist (trad on tenor banjo, American Old-Time on 5-string banjo) but also engages with fiddle, mandolin and guitar.

(8.3.18 - I’ve entered some of the abcs wrong - I intend to be back and correct them soon…)

Re: Flower Of The Town

It’s OK now. The tune happens, indeed, to have an extended second part.

Re: Flower Of The Town

Following a memo from Sid (composer) I’ve corrected some notes in the second part of the tune.
The first two bars of the second part - a group of notes occurring four times altogether in this part - now, correctly, read:
| d2 e fed | c2 a afc |

I had erroneously first entered them as:
| d2 f fed | e2 a afc |
