Fiddlers in the Midwest during the 1940s and '50s listened to Canadian radio stations, and some of them picked up fiddle tunes from the broadcasts. Other fiddlers would buy 78s and 45s of Canadian music from city vendors. This tune might have been composed by Ned Landry of New Brunswick. In the Midwest it was popularized by fiddlers Casey Jones and Cyril Stinnett.
