HAZEL DEAN . American, March (2/4 time). USA, southwestern Pa. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Bayard (1981) was unable to trace this tune except for a version in Howe (Diamond School for the Violin), 1861, as the 6th tune of a set of "Caledonian Quadrilles," which may indicate Scottish origins. By stretching the time values it begins to look more like other British Isles tunes, but he suggests this American tune "emerged out of the mass" of old-country music, rather than having a specific progenitor. One tune he found bore more resemblance, though, than did others—"Dornoch Links" from Kerr (vol. 1, p. 48). There is also melodic material reminiscent of "Stumpie."
