Fair Jenny was written by Ron Wallace and isone of his marvelous dances
available in leaflet form from the TAC and many RSCDS Brach libraries.

I'm sure that Ron would publish more and even publish a book of dances if
he could afford to.

Next time you 'give away' a dance on email, please remember the deviser is
probably still out-of-pocket for having published and made available to
you the delightful dance you are about to enjoy.
