    The Gypsy Weaver was composed by Liz Donaldson.  I don't believe it has
    been published, however, Liz's e-mail address is Sorry I can't
    help you with Jennifer's Jig.

    hi Mike -
    I think Jennifer is a Fitchett tune.

    According to John Drewry's Silver City Book, where Jennifer's Jig (the
    dance) is published, the tune is by Drummond Cook. DanceData says that
    it appears in a collection called the `Tae Gar Ye Loup Book 1', which
    also seems to contain a bunch of other popular Drummond Cook tunes such
    as the Back Shore Hornpipe, The Knock of Braemoray and the eponymous Tae
    Gar Ye Loup.
    Anyone know where to buy this? I think I could use a copy.

    I have the LP of Drummond Cooks Tae Gar Ye Loup and it contains
    Shiftin Bobbins, Schiehallion, The Bees of Maggieknockater, The Duchess
    Tree, Jennifers Jig, Cold & Raw, The Moray Rant (recorded four times rather
    than 3), Johnnie's Welcome Hame,The Balmoral Strathspey and the Knock of
    Breaemoray.. If this is the album you want I shall be happy to do a copy
    onto a cassette and forward it to you - I would require your address.

    Jennifer's Jig is by Drummond Cook. Used on Tae Gar Ye Loup, Colin Dewar's
    Special Requests Vol 3 and Taylor and Imbrie's Live.
    Lovely Tune.
