Five comments

Duplication ~

Yes!!! :-/

This is not only a duplication, it’s a direct note-for-note rip-off from Natalie MacMaster’s website ~ definitely not considerate. Linking to another transcription in the ‘comments’ is OK, but to grab her transcription off of her site, right down to the ornaments and variations, is a bit tacky…

“Northside Kitchen” ~ who’s ripped off who with this chimera of a jig?

Note-for-note, ornament-for-ornament, including variations ~ this transcription was made by Paul Stewart Cranford for the following:

Page 41: "Norside Kitchen" ~ exactly as given here, including the variations… The name was coined by Paul. Here are the notes from that entry ~

This setting of an old Irish jig came from a long line (at least four generations of Northside Irish fiddlers) starting with Henry Fortune > Joe Confiant > Robert Stubbert > Brenda. Henry was gone long before my time and Old Joe was about 80 when I met him. Joe, Robert and Brenda all have slightly different variations (Joe varied almost all of his tunes with each repetition), so I included a couple of extra twists from those sources.

Although previously an untitled traditional jig, the first turn of ‘Northside Kitchen’ is closely related to another well-known Irish jig, ‘The Cook in the Kitchen’, so I came up with the above title. First appearing in ‘O’Neill’s Music of Ireland (1903), ‘The Cook in the Kitchen’ is a traditional 3-part jig which came from uillean piper James Early. ~ Paul Stewart Cranford

Chimera ~ I recognize both parts, the A-part from "The Cook in the Kitchen" and the B-part from another, but I haven’t yet been able to shake the name out for that other jig… Maybe slainte or someone else will remember. I guess, because it is two parts thrown together over time and renamed by Paul Cranford, this one remains, despite it all…
