ERYRI WEN (White Snowdon). Welsh, Air (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune first appears in Edward Jones' Musical and Poetical Relicks of the Welsh Bards (1784). The title refers to Mount Snowdon, a 3,559 foot peak located in North Wales; the tallest in Wales, if not England, and a favorite climb of hikers. On a clear day one can see Ireland from the top, which is also accessible by geared railway.

Snowdon from Llanberis Lake, 1905 print.
