The Thornton Jig

From the playing of Billy Ross,transcribed from a tape of a live radio broadcast.It sounds like a variation of "Elsie Marley".

This also follows up "The Heilandmen Cam’ Doon the Hill" on Ossian’s recording "Seal Song".

The Thornton Jig

Apparently composed by a Donald Cameron.

Thornton Jig

Seven years ago I said, "Apparently composed by a Donald Cameron." Then I couldn’t remember where I got that information. I still can’t, but in Ross’s Collection of Pipe Music (1875) it is there, "by D Cameron".
