GRANDMOTHER'S PET. AKA and see "Mother Goose," "Grandfather's Pet (1)." Irish (?), Jig. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O'Neill prints the tune as "Grandfather's Pet (1)," although Kennedy has a different tune by that name. However, the tune had been printed far earlier in Boston by G. Graupner in his Collection of Country Dances and Cotillions (c. 1808) as "Mother Goose", and it was entered as an untitled jig in County Leitrim fiddler and piper Stephen Grier's large c. 1883 music manuscript collection (Grier No. 122, for which see "Jig (53)").
