| Spiffin' seems to be well-enough entrenched and enjoyed that it ought to
| have its OWN tune! Any offers or suggestions? I'm going to be putting the
| instructions up on my web site (in html and pdf formats), and would be
| delighted to say something about the music.

FWIW, several (?-has it been that long)? years ago I was organizing the music
for a class party that the Quarries had put Spiffin' on the program. Since I
didn't know of any particular name tune, I looked through my generic
arrangements for something I felt fit the dance and settled on a set of Tom
("Peter's Peerie Boat"/Hooper's Jig) Anderson jigs: Mo's Peerie Boston;
Eshaness Two-Step; Jennie Slater. They didn't complain about those tunes
then, so we've been using it ever since.
