The Mouth of The Tobique

Good tune. But, the third part as I know it is a little different.
It’s more of a steady flow of 8th notes with accented string crossings on those B’s and C’s. (what I learned in another lifetime as a "Georgia Shuffle" bowing).
Definitely a fiddle tune! The versionI know comes from the first Celtic Fiddle Festival recording (after the Dionne Reel) ..

Mouth of the Tobique

This is one of my favorite tunes played at our local session. Named for the Tobique river in Canada, there is a fiddle gathering there called Fiddles on theTobique - if anyone wants contact information about it, let me know. We play it much faster, and a bit differently than this sheet music and midi. Here is a "field recording" quality sound clip.
Scroll down to the third track on this page:

The Dionne Reel! I know it’s named after the Dionne Quintuplets, but have never been able to find the music — anyone have it?

Mp3.com gremlins

Hi, Sarah, mp3.com does weird things sometimes with the music files a person posts on their page, shuffling it around when you don’t want it changed. I will see if I an get it to show up again on my station of Music From Montana. It might take a couple of days for mp3.com to update my changes.

The mouth of four beaks?

Is this the same tune as the mouth of the tobique?

Rhythm is wrong in the notation for the 3rd part

At least for the way that the celtic fiddle festival plays this, the syncopated phrases in third part should have this rhythm:

quarter note
dotted quarter note
dotted quarter note
dotted quarter note
dotted quarter note
quarter note

But really what I think they are doing, and what I find very enjoyable to do as well, is to play solid eighth notes through that whole phrase and just play accented eighth notes where the beginning of the notes above would be.

Great recording

I have a wonderful recording of this tune i just took last night. uh… it’s beautiful. if anyone would like it, just contact me! smiles, Jess
