A tune by the master Cape Breton fiddler Jerry Holland for Denis Lanctot, with whom he’s played many times. Found in Jerry Holland’s Second Collection of fiddle tunes, and heard (!) on his album Fiddler’s Choice (both of which can be found at, this tune zips along brilliantly, like Denis’ playing (on fiddle or piano). I’ve found this tune works with pretty much any set of tunes I’ve put it in. Jerry graciously gave permission to share it with everyone here. Thanks!

ABC changes

A couple of changes have been made in the ABC notation, direct from Jerry Holland (thanks again!). These may not show up on the sheet music, so the ABC is definitive.
