Back to Northside Kitchen
NORTHSIDE KITCHEN. Canadian, Jig. Canada, Cape Breton. G Mixolydian/Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. As the first strain of this traditional jig is closely related to O'Neill's "Cook in the Kitchen (1) (The)," editor Paul Cranford gave it this title.
Source for notated version: Editor Paul Cranford traces this untitled Irish jig through generations of Northside Cape Breton Irish fiddlers, beginning in the 19th century with Henry Fortune to Joe Confiant (who was 80 when Cranford met him) to Robert Stubbert and then to his daughter, Brenda Stubbert (b. 1959, Point Aconi, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia) [Cranford].
