DIDSBURY HUNT. English, Jig. England, North-West. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Didsbury Hunt was a social club in Didsbury, Manchester, England. There is a record of a dinner sponsored by the Hunt in 1792, coinciding with burnings of Thomas Paine in effigy (reactive to the excesses of the French Revolution, and Paine's support of it). The melody originally appeared in Cahusac's Twenty Four Country Dances for the Year 1792 (London).
