Simon St. Pierre (1930-2016), originally from Quebec, lived most of his adult life in Smyrna Mills, Maine USA. He was very influential in the revival of traditional dance music in the 1970s in Maine. As M. St. Pierre didn't remember its name the tune was known among Maine musicians as Simon's Jig in D. It was actually composed by June Eikhard, who was known as Canada’s First Lady Of The Fiddle. Eikhard was a New Brunswick fiddler whose compositions were recorded by both Don Messer and Graham Townsend.
