Gordon Jackson Origins: Ribbons of the Redheaded Girl (5) Origins: Ribbons of the Redheaded Girl 08 Mar 18

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know anything about the reel, The Ribbons of the Redheaded Girl?

I heard it on Dave Swarbrick's 'Smiddyburn' album, loved it and recorded it, but know nothing about it! I don't even know if it's Irish or Scottish, whether it's ever appeared in print or who composed it.

Can anyone help?
