JIMMY LINN'S HORNPIPE. American, Hornpipe/Clog. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Boucher): AABB (Cole, Ryan). "Can be used as a Clog" (Cole). Composed credited to a "J.L." in Ryan's Mammoth, presumably the self-same Jimmy Linn (about whom nothing is known). The clog was picked up by Cape Breton fiddlers such as Winston Fitzgerald and John Campbell from Cole's 1000, and has since been recorded by other Cape Breton style fiddlers. The tune appears as the first of a series of hornpipes set in a medley and recorded first by Charles D'Almaine in 1904, with the same medley recorded again in 1920 by violinist Percy Scott. The medley was transcribed in J.A. Boucher's rare 1933 printed collection Le Repertoire du Violoneux."
