X: 1 T: Willie's Trip To Toronto O: attr. Jerry Holland M: 6/8 L: 1/8 Z: 1997 by John Chambers <jc:trillian.mit.edu> N: Origin of the name, from fiddleinspain@thesession.org: N: [Stan told me that he] was touring Cape Breton with some young fiddlers N: and dropped in to see Jerry Holland. Jerry played him a jig and Stan N: liked it so much he asked if he could have the dots so he could teach N: it to his students. He toured/played/taught for the next year or so N: and then met a fiddler who played him the same tune. When Stan identified N: it by the name he’d been given (Willie’s Trip to Toronto?), the fiddler N: looked at him funny and told him it was called Stan Chapman’s... That N: was the first time he found out it had been renamed in his honour! I’m N: pretty sure Stan still has the handwritten copy with the original title N: somewhere.
