WHITE CREEK. AKA - "Dirty Woman Creek." American, Reel (cut time). USA, Oklahoma. A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). AABB. Thede says the name possibly alludes to the Missouri White Creek. The tune was one in the repertoire of the Oklahoma (by way of Missouri) Collins family, some of whose members contributed to Marion Thede's 12967 book; the most famous representative of this musical family was fiddler Earl Collins (of Oklahoma and southern California), who recorded several albums.
