FANNY/FANNIE HILL . American, Reel (cut time). USA; southwestern Va., south-western Ky. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB (Titon): AABB (Phillips). There are two different tunes called "Fanny Hill." One was in the repertory of early 20th century fiddlers from the Galax, Virginia region (for which see "Fanny Hill (2)." "Fanny Hill " is associated with fiddlers from southwestern Kentucky, namely W.L. "Jake Phelps" and Street Butler. Jeff Titon says Butler's version is closely related to one of the "Cumberland Gap" versions, but Phelps' version is quite distanced from Butlers (but still recognizable as a variant) and is quite archaic in sound and structure.
