P.B. ISAACS' JIG. American, Reel or Schottische (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Editor George H. Coes was a musician and blackface minstrel who performed with the San Francisco Minstrels in California from 1852 to 1859, where he probably came into contact with Phil Isaacs. Edward Le Roy Rice’s compendium of performers in the genre, Monarchs of Minstrelsy (New York, 1911), lists a P.D. Isaacs, a fiddler. He was one of the early black-face minstrel leaders, “and a fine musician. He was one of the original members of Bryant’s Minstrels [1] in New York at their opening, February 23, 1857. He was born in London, England, 1831; he died in San Francisco, September 6, 1857” (p. 78). See also "Phil Isaacs' Jig."
