BERWICK ASSEMBLY. Scottish, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The title refers to an upper-class group association for dancing centered in Berwick, northern England. The melody appears in the Calvert Collection (1799), compiled by musician Thomas Calvert of Kelso, Borders, Scotland. A note with the manuscript states that Calvert supplied "a variety of music and instruments, instruments lent out, tun'd and repaired" in that town.
