Noonday Feast (1) (The)
Back to Noonday Feast (1) (The)
NOONDAY FEAST , THE. AKA - "Noon Day Feast." AKA and see "Kitty Come Over," "Scatter the Mud (2)" (Scaip an Puiteach). Irish, Jig. E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. See also the first strain of Roche's "Maids of Tramore." Melodeon player P.J. Conlon recorded the tune in 1920 on 78 RPM under the title "The Black Thornstick." Five years later the jig was recorded in New York by James "The Professor" Morrison, originally from County Sligo, as "Noon Day Feast," paired with "Rambles with Rory" (better known as "Fasten the Leggin' (1))." As with many influential recordings, the jigs sometimes became disseminated with the first title in the medley; thus "Rambles with Rory/Fasten the Leggin" also can occasionally be found as "Noonday Feast (2) (The)."
