Panelmine Jig (The)
Back to Panelmine Jig (The)
PANELMINE JIG, THE. Canadian, Jig. Canada, Cape Breton. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA’BB’. Composed by fiddler John Campbell (1919–2010, Boston, Mass., originally from Glenora Falls, Inverness County, Cape Breton) in 1956. Paul Cranford (1997) remarks that Campbell composed this tune while working in Elliot Lake, Ontario, at the mine of the title, prior to moving to Boston. Fitzgerald’s version is a bit distanced from the way Campbell composed it.
Source for notated version: Winston Fitzgerald (1914–1987, Cape Breton) [Cranford].
