COCK OF THE NORTH [3]. Irish, Slide (12/8 time).



X:1
T:Cock o' the North [3]
D:Jackie Daly, "Many's a Wild Night", track 13(b)
M:12/8
N:From the album notes by Ma/ire O'Keeffe:
N:[T]he last two slides are versions of the well known
N:"Cock o'the North".  This is a common Scottish piping
N:tune which can be found in 6/8 time in James Hunter's
N:"The Fiddle music of Scotland" No. 299, where we are
N:told that the Cock o' the North was an honorary title
N:for the Duke of Gordon.  The second tune came from
N:the playing of Maurice O'Keeffe of Kishkeam who
N:attributed this version to the playing of Johnny Billy,
N:a far-out relation of Tom Billy's who was renowned
N:for the sweetness of his playing.  According to
N:Maurice, Johnny Bill was a shy man and was never
N:recorded.
