SNOWBIRD IN THE ASHBANK . American, Reel (cut time). USA, Kentucky. D Major. Standard or ADae tuning (fiddle). AABB. One of several (unrelated) tunes by this title. Masters told Harrod the bird (snowbird refers to a junco) was in the ash bank and not on it, as the title usually goes. The tune is imitative of the bird's hopping, as are other "Snowbird in/on the Ashbank" tunes, more-or-less.
