SCARLET CLOG, THE. AKA - “Tom's E-Flat Clog," "Tommy's E Flat Clog.” Canadian, Clog (cut time). Canada, Nova Scotia. E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was recorded as “Tommy’s E Flat Clog” by the Irish group Moving Clouds, who learned it from Nova Scotia fiddler Tom Doucet's 1975 recording "The Down East Star." While Doucet claimed the composition as his own, it is said that Cape Breton fiddler Dave MacIsaac has found a similar melody in an old Cape Breton manuscript. Doucet emigrated to the Boston area where he became very active in the club and dance hall music scene in the 1920s and 1930s. His repertoire included jigs, reels, foxtrots and 'hot' tunes as well as clogs and hornpipes.
