FIDDLING AFTER ONE-HUNDRED. Canadian, Strathspey. Canada, Cape Breton. A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB. A traditional pipe tune, learned by Robert Stubbert from the elderly "down North" musician John Rory Fraser and passed on to his daughter, Brenda Stubbert, who chorded for them on piano when she was age seven (Cranford). The tune name was coined by Paul Cranford. The first part of the tune is similar to the 18th century Irish country dance tune "Bonny Ladd and Bonny Lass (The)," which itself may be of Scots origin.

Source for notated version: fiddler Brenda Stubbert (b. 1959, Point Aconi, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia) [Cranford].

Printed sources: Cranford (Brenda Stubbert's Collection of Fiddle Tunes), 1994; No. 20, p. 8.

Recorded sources: Brenda Stubbert – "House Sessions" (1992. Appears as "Traditional Strathspey").
