Nine Pint Coggie (3) (The)
Back to Nine Pint Coggie (3) (The)
NINE PINT COGGIE , THE. Irish, Reel. Ireland, County Donegal. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune is similar to Scott Skinner's "Davie Work." Nigel Gatherer points out the first part is actually closer to James Fraser's "Mill Burn (1) (The)," although as a whole (and especially in the second strain) it seems derivative of Skinner's tune. Ted Hastings suggests that source Doherty, a fan of Skinner's, may have confused the tunes and titles of "Davie Work" and "Nine Pint Coggie."
Source for notated version: fiddler John Doherty (1985-1980, County Donegal) [Feldman & O'Doherty].
