DANDY JIM [2]. American, Reel. USA, Kentucky. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Not the minstrel tune "Dandy Jim from Caroline," says Jeff Titon (2001), but that it "bears the marks" of African-American origin. It is a tune found only in the Cumberland Plateau region of the mid-Kentucky/Tennessee border area.
