FLORA'S BIRTHDAY. American, Jig (6/8 time). C Major (Howe/1843): D Major (Howe/1867, O'Flannagan). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appaers in a number of Boston publisher Elias Howe's publications, including his 1860 volume by Patrick O'Flannagan (Hibernia Collection), indicating he perhaps thought that the tune had an Irish provenance. The melody was entered as a duet into the music manuscript collection of American musician M.E. Eames, dated Aug. 22nd, 1859 (Eames was probably from Philadelphia, Pa.).
