JIGUE TENFANT. French-Canadian, Jig. The piece comes from Montreal fiddler Jean Carignan's mentor, fiddler Joseph Allard, who learned it from his father. Tenfant was Allard's father's name and is probably a corruption of petit enfant or ton 'enfant', becoming t'enfant in casual speech. This track actually contains two tunes, both of which are common Irish session tunes: Old Man Dillon and The Rose in the Heather.
