Blue Fiddle

My wife, Cathy, learned this tune from Pierre Schryer & Dermot Byrne at a workshop in Goderich, Ontario. I couldn’t find the tune on this website, so she made this ABC file. We’re not sure what type of tune this is, so I called it a march, since that seems to be the most general category. Suggestions welcome. This tune was written by Steve Cooney.

Re: Blue Fiddle

Steve Cooney refers to his tune as a "slip polka," which would therefore be written in 3/4 I believe.
