MISS AUBONE SURTEES’ FAVOURITE. AKA and see “Blaydon Flats.” Scottish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by Scottish fiddler and composer Abraham Mackintosh (b. 1769), who lived in Tyneside in the English/Scottish Borders region. The melody (as "Blaydon Flats") is sometimes attributed to fiddler James Hill, who apparently liked and played the tune (and who may not have disabused the notion that it was his).
