SPIN-N-GLOW.AKA - "Spin and Glow." American (originally), Canadian; Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA’BB’. Composed by fiddler Frank Ferrell (Boston, Mass.). The tune was named for a neon-colored fishing lure, which the composer thought “spins and glows just like the dancers do.” Ferrell caught his first Steelhead trout fishing in the Pacific northwest with the lure. Perlman (1996) notes the tune was introduced to Cape Breton fiddlers by Buddy MacMaster (1924-2014).
