Canadian-style jig

Composed by U.S. fiddler George Wilson. I play it as second tune in a set after Don Tremaine’s Jig and followed by The Box Stove Jig. All three jigs have key changes in the B part.

Published a long time ago

I think I recall that this can be found in a book of George’s tunes compiled by his friend Jerry Jenkins in the early 1980’s. George put "Frenchified" titles to the tunes like he put "Swedified" names of himself on his Royal Circus cd. I forgot how he punned this one in great baaad form. Anyway, more of George’s tunes should be posted!
