JENNY LYNN [2]. American, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'B. The reel, from the playing of north-central Kentucky fiddler Everett Kays, is a distanced version of the once popular 19th century "Jenny Lind (1)" polka. Contrast Kays' tune with "Jenny Lynn Polka" from the playing of fiddler Doug Stipe, of Camp Nelson, Jessamine County in central Kentucky, just south of Louisville. Stipe was recorded in 1979 by collector John Harrod and knew the tune from tradition; it is much more faithful to the original "Jenny Lind (1)."

X:1 T:Jenny Lynn Polka N:From the playing of Doug Stipe (Camp Nelson, Jessamine N:County, central Kentucky). Recorded in the N:field in June, 1978, by John Harrod. Mr. Stipe played N:the first strain an octave higher the 2nd time through. M:2/4 L:1/8 R:Reel Q:"Quick" D:https://soundarchives.berea.edu/items/show/3456 Z:Transcribed by Andrew Kuntz K:G G,/A,/
