Above is a
traditional setting of a reel I learned in the kitchen of
Johnny Wilmot. He had learned it 50 years ealier from
his uncle Joe Confiant.
Alex Gillis and The
Inverness Serenaders recorded a medley of two separate
pipe tunes which included many similarities. On the 78
disc, two titles were given The Red Fiddle and Dancing of
the Fingers. The 2nd tune contained only the B and C
parts of the above. Note, there is a 6 part pipe tune
known as the Dancing of the Fingers (Henderson Tutor, c.
1900) that has 2 related bars, but most of the structure
is quite different.
