PAUSTEEN FAWN, THE. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The title is a corruption of the Irish Gaelic “An Páistín Fionn” (The Fairhaired Boy/Child). The melody is played as a song air and a hornpipe, as well as a jig . New York City researcher, writer and musician Don Meade says the jig version is nowadays often called “Statia Donnelly's.”
