CANNY CUMBERLAND [1]. English, Jig. England, North-West. D Major ('A' part) & D Mixolydian ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Cazden (et al, 1982) briefly mentions a British song by this title whose tune is a strain of his Catskill Mountain (New York) collected minor-key song "The Cumberland Crew." Despite the similarity in titles the tune printed by Knowles and Cazden's do not appear to be similar, and he may be referring to another tune used for the song "Canny Cumberland."
