WEAVER'S TRIUMPH, THE (Tha bhuaidh aig an fhigheadair). Scottish, Jig (6/8 time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "This air the editor heard in a very imperfect state from an itinerant country tailor, ranting, in place of 'Jenny Dang the Weaver (1)', 'The triumph of a weaver of his acquaintance over Jenny.' It occurred to the editor that it would make a delightful dance, which he has accordingly modelled with very flattering success into its present shape" (Fraser).
