EILEEN ALANNA. Scottish, Irish; Reel or Highland Fling. G Major ('A' part) & E Minor ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Perhaps the earliest recording is from a Victor records issue in 1913, recorded in Camden, N.J., by violinist Charles D'Alamaine, born in 1871 in England (died in 1943). D'Alamaine immigrated to the United States in 1888, and by 1890 had established himself as "instructor on violin" in Evanston, Illinois; by 1910 he had removed to Yonkers, and in 1920 was a chiropractor in New York City (info. from Paul Gifford).
