WHITE’S SNOWDEN. English, Air (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A different tune than “White Snowden/Eryri Wen." The tune also appears as “White Snowdon” in the music manuscript copybook of John Burks, dated 1821, who may have been from the north of England (photocopy in possession of the editor). It is nearly identical with Gibbon’s version.

Source for notated version: the 1823-26 music mss of papermaker and musician Joshua Gibbons (1778-1871, of Tealby, near Market Rasen, Lincolnshire Wolds) [Sumner].

Printed sources: Sumner (Lincolnshire Collections, vol. 1: The Joshua Gibbons Manuscript), 1997; p. 95.
