CUCANANDY. AKA - "Cuaichin Aindi." AKA and see "Denis Murphy's Slide (4)," "Whistling Thief (2) (The)." Irish, Air and Slip Jig. E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. The alternate title "The Whistling Thief" comes from a song by Samuel Lover. The title "Cucanandy" derives from a lilt meant for baby-dandling, sung by Elizabeth Cronin of Ballyvourney, County Cork, on a 1951 Seamus Ennis recording: "Cuc, cucanandy, cucanandy, O." Mrs. Cronin was bedridden at the time of the recording, explains piper Neil Mulligan, and sang into a microphone set beside her on her pillow.
