MR. A. G. WILKEN'S FAVOURITE. Scottish, Solo Strathspey (whole time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "Mr. A.G. Wilken's Favourite" was composed by Aberdeenshire fiddler-composer and Scottish dancing master wikipedia:James_Scott_Skinner (1843-1927) as a 'solo' strathspey, meaning a strathspey for listening, not for dancing. Skinner noted that 'Mr. Wilken' was an amateur violinist from village of Ellon, Aberdeenshire. His name also appears in the list of subscribers and patrons of Skinner's 1881 collection, where he is described as a merchant.
