JACK'S CREEK RIDGE. American, Reel (cut time). A Major. AEac# tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune is sourced to fiddler Charles Hoskins (Hyden, Leslie County, south-eastern Kentucky), via collector Peter Hoover (1939-2019) who recorded Hoskins in the field in 1961, and who passed the tune along to Bruce Greene.

As a place name, there are several 'Jack's Creek's' to choose from in southeastern Kentucky, as it is the name of a road, an unincorporated town, and a waterway. Bluegrass stars the Osborne Brothers lived in source Hoskin's town of Hyden when they were young, before moving on to Ohio.
