NOONDAY FEAST [1], THE. AKA - "Noon Day Feast." AKA and see "Kitty Come Over," "Scatter the Mud (2)" (Scaip an Puiteach). Irish, Jig (6/8 time). E Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Melodeon player P.J. Conlon recorded the tune in 1920 on 78 RPM under the title "Black Thornstick (The)." Five years later the jig was recorded in New York by James Morrison (fiddler) (1893-1947), nicknamed "The Professor", originally from County Sligo, as "Noon Day Feast," paired with "Rambles with Rory" (better known as "Fasten the Leggin' (1))" or "Fasten the Leg in Her." 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)."

See also the first strain of Frank Roche's "Maids of Tramore."
