BACKWARDS FIDDLE, THE. Canadian/American, Reel. Canada, Cape Breton. A Major. Standard. AA'BB'. Composed by teenaged friends Kimberley Fraser (Sydney Mines, Cape Breton) and Rosie Shipley (Baltimore, Maryland & Beach Meadows, Nova Scotia). The tune's name came about, says Cook, when Kimberely and Rosie, left- and right-handed respectively, switched fiddles.
