Jenkins, George

Biographical info

George Jenkins (c.1760-c.1806) was a London teacher of 'Scotch dancing'; the publication of his earliest work in Edinburgh by Brysson c.1789-90 suggests he had left Scotland by 1794. He was friendly with the Gow family, and possibly came from Perthshire. (Alburger, 62) Further works include Eighteen Airs for two violins and a bass (London: For the Author, c.1785; Edinburgh: Brysson, c.1790), and reports of another title, Thirty Highland Airs (London, 1791) (Glen 2, xvi; Baptie)
