Four comments

The Cribbies

From the albums/playing of Graham Wells and Dan Possumato.

Composed by fiddler Colin Carrigan. The tune is named after an area of coastal meadow near Tor’s Cove, Newfoundland. The Cribbies used to be its’ own community.

The Cribbies, X:2

From the playing of Graham Wells.

I’ve also updated X1 to be from Dan Possumato’s recording (i.e., no longer a mix between Graham’s and Dan’s settings).

The Cribbies, X:3

Some variations from the playing of Graham Wells.

Bar 5 of the A Part also works as "dBBA dcBA".
