VINCENT CAMPBELL’S (JIG). AKA and see "Australian Waters," "Dewdrops on the Corn," "Mooney's Jig." Irish, Jig. D Major/Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB’. The tune is associated with Donegal fiddler Vincent Campbell [1], and thus may have originated in that county. “Australian Waters” is an alternate title, played by the late flute player Frankie Kennedy of the group Altan.
