Notation Note: The tunes below are recorded in what is called “abc notation.” They can easily be converted to standard musical notation via highlighting with your cursor starting at “X:1” through to the end of the abc’s, then “cutting-and-pasting” the highlighted notation into one of the many abc conversion programs available, or at concertina.net’s incredibly handy “ABC Convert-A-Matic” at

http://www.concertina.net/tunes_convert.html 

 

**Please note that the abc’s in the Fiddler’s Companion work fine in most abc conversion programs. For example, I use abc2win and abcNavigator 2 with no problems whatsoever with direct cut-and-pasting. However, due to an anomaly of the html, pasting the abc’s into the concertina.net converter results in double-spacing. For concertina.net’s conversion program to work you must remove the spaces between all the lines of abc notation after pasting, so that they are single-spaced, with no intervening blank lines. This being done, the F/C abc’s will convert to standard notation nicely. Or, get a copy of abcNavigator 2 – its well worth it.   [AK]

 

 

 

TROUBLE ON THE NINE MILE.  AKA and see “Lighthouse.” Old-Time, Breakdown. “Trouble on the Nine Mile” was the name Uncle Dick Hutchison called the tune, one of the “Dubuque” family of melodies.

 

TRIP, DA. Shetland, Shetland Reel. Shetland, Whalsay (?).

           

TRIP AND GO. English, Country Dance Air (6/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning. AAB. This sixteenth century dance air appears in Musick's Delight on the Cithren (1666). Chappell (1859) says 'trip and go' seems to have become a proverbial expression, as in Shakespeare's Love's Lavour's Lost:

***

‘Trip and go', my sweet.

***

Gosson's Schoole of Abuse (1579):

‘Trip and go', for I dare not tarry.

***

and Ben Jonson's Case is altered:

O delicate 'trip and go'.

***

Perhaps all these references stem from John Milton’s lyric poem L’Allegro, published in 1645, directed to the goddess Mirth:

Come, and trip it, as you go,

On the light fantastic toe;

And in they right hand lead with thee

The mountain-nymph, sweet Liberty.

***

TRIP BAG, THE. Shetland, Shetland Reel. Shetland, Whalsay.

 

TRIP FROM STADE, A.  English, Jig. G Minor. Standard tuning. AABB. The melody is unique to Charles and Samuel Thompson’s 1765 country dance collection. The title probably refers to the city of Stade, in lower Saxony, Germany, near Hamburg. Stade was acquired from the Swedes in 1719 by the Electors of Hanover, one of whom, George Louis (George I) was also King of England. There are several references to Germany in tune titles in the Thompson collections, indicating the connection between England and Germany through the Hanoverian rulers.

TRIP TO ANKERWICK.  English, Jig. A major. Standard tuning. AABB. The melody was originally published in Charles and Samuel Thompson’s Compleat Collection, vol. 3 (London, 1773). As with numerous other of the Thompson’s 1773 tunes, it was entered into the music manuscript copybook of fiddlers John and William Pitt Turner (Norwich, Conn.). Ankerwick, Egham, Berkshire, was once the site of a Benedictine Convent. The manor of Ankerwick was an ancient one, but in the 18th century passed into the hands of Elizabeth Lee, from her father John. Elizabeth married Sir Philip Harcourt, she being his second wife. Their son was John Harcourt of Ankerwick, and the manor remained in the hands of the Harcourt family for many generations.

The tune was recorded by the Tulla Ceili Band, Tulla, County Clare, and by east Clare fiddlers Paddy Canny and P.J. Hayes.

TRIP TO BATH [2]. English, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning. AABB. Source George Bush (c. 1753-1797) was an officer in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Kate Van Winkler Keller (1992) dates the tune to the 1720’s and says the original title was “The Bath Medley.” It was the vehicle for a song that began “The Spring’s a coming, all nature is blooming,” and was popular throughout the 18th century as a country dance tune and a quick march. This melody also appears in the 1775 commonplace book of fifer William Williams (Pautuxit, R.I.). Source for notated version: the George Bush MS [Keller]. Keller (Fiddle Tunes from the American Revolution), 1992; pg. 21.

TRIP TO CARTMEL. English, Country Dance Tune (4/4 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning. AABB. The melody comes from the Browne family music manuscripts, donated to the Armitt Library, now in the Armitt Collection of Ambleside Museum. The manuscripts were written in several hands over time and date to the 1830’s; prior to being collected and donated, they were in the possession of the Browne family of Troutbeck, in the old county of Westmoreland (now Cumbria). The attraction in the Lake District village of Cartmel was the horsecourse (and probably not the c. 1120 priory there!), dating to 1845 or earlier. Knowles (A Northern Lass), 1995; pg. 5.

The melody also appears in the 1798 music manuscript collection of north Yorkshire fiddler Joshua Jackson (1763-1839). Castle Howard is a stately manor residence in North Yorkshire, built between 1699 and 1712 for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle to a design by Sir John Vanbrugh. It is familiar in modern times as the setting for the Granada television series Brideshead Revisited. Barnes (English Country Dance Tunes, vol. 2), 2005; pg. 131.

TRIP TO COTTINGHAM. AKA and see “Garcon Volage,” “Sally Sloane’s,” “The Village Boy Quadrille.” English, Country Dance Tune (6/8 time). England, Yorkshire. G Major. Standard tuning. AABBCC. “Trip to Cottingham” can be found in the music manuscripts of Lawrence Ledley (1827-1897) of Helperby, Yorkshire, and in the c. 1800-1850 Brown Family manuscripts of the Lake District (other versions appear in the Brown mss. as “Le Garcon Volange” and “The Village Boy Quadrille”). English musician Johnny Adams says the tune inexplicably surfaced in Australia in the 1960’s played by fiddler and melodeon player Sally Sloane, and was called “Sally Sloane’s Jig” by local musicians. How this North Yorkshire tune remained in tradition to survive and be collected there is a mystery. The tune first appears in print by John Simpson under the title “Le Nouvell Fantasie,” perhaps an English imitation of a French tune (given that the grammar of the title is wanting). It also appears under the similar title “La Fantase” in the c. 1831 music manuscript of George Spencer, a musician from Leeds, West Yorkshire. Lionel Winship (Wark, Northumberland) entered it into his 1833 music manuscript simply as “A Quadrille.” The aforementioned Simpson had a music shop at 260 (later 266) Regent Street, London, from 1826 to 1869, and claimed to have invented the term flageolet. A double boxwood/ivory/silver flageolet with Simpson’s name and address resides at the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, Australia. Simpson also traded in concertinas and published a tutor in 1855 called Easy Method of Learning the Concertina by John Simpson, Teacher of the Flageolet. He formed a short lived partnership called Simpson and Wieppert toward the end of his life, that manufactured concertinas. The Wheatstone records indicate that he regularly bought Wheatstone instruments to sell at his shop prior to the 1850’s. Source for notated version: an MS collection by fiddler Lawrence Leadley (Helperby, Yorkshire) [Merryweather & Seattle]. Callaghan (Hardcore English), 2007; pg. 74.

TRIP TO DURHAM. Irish, Slip Jig. North Star NS0031, "Dance Across the Sea: Dances and Airs from the Celtic Highlands" (1990).

           

TRIP TO DURROW, THE (An Turas go Darmhagh). Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning. AA'B (Carlin): AABB (Mallinson, Songer, Taylor); ABC (Breathnach). “Trip to Durrow” has been attributed to Irish fiddler Dan Cleary (1918-2004), of Ballinamere, County Offaly. Cleary played a number of instruments, including the uilleann pipes, piano and tin whistle, and was a member of a number of céili bands in the mid-20th century, notably the Ballinamere Céili Band, which won All-Ireland titles in the mid-1950’s. “Trip to Durrow” may stem from Cleary’s days as a young man with the Colmcille Céili Band, of Durrow, Co. Offaly, who played regularly in the Forresters Hall in Tullamore (see Treoir, vol. 38, No. 2, 2006, pgs. 37-38). The arrangement in Carlin's collection, by Leo Rowsome, differs from that in Taylor's by being more regular (the length of the 'A' and 'B' parts is the same with the 'A' repeated). Taylor (1992) makes the point that his version of "The Trip to Durrow" is unusual in the length of the second part (16 bars, repeated); perhaps unique in Irish music along with the possible inclusion of "Ballinasloe Fair" which also boasts a long second part, though it is altogether half the length of "The Trip to Durrow.” He thinks the tune may have originally been a three-part melody. Breathnach (1996) says the three part version, either AABBCC or AABCBC depending on the locale, has its source in his Ceol Rince na h-Éireann collection. He remarks that the last part was to illustrate a variant of the ‘A’ part, or how another musician had played the strain, but that a footnote explaining the structure was omitted from the volume. Source for notated version: Randal Bays & Joel Bernstein (Seattle, Washington) [Songer]; piper Seán Potts (Ireland) [Breathnach]. Breathnach (CRÉ I), 1963; No. 127, pg. 52.

Standard tuning. AABB (most versions): AABB' (Phillips): AABA (Trim). The title appears in a list of tunes in his repertoire brought by Philip Goodman, the last professional and traditional piper in Farney, Louth, to the Feis Ceoil in Belfast in 1898 (Breathnach, 1997). One of the earliest recordings of the melody was in 1909 when Cecil Sharp waxed it on a cylinder from the playing of John Locke (in the key of ‘A’), described as a “gipsy fiddler.” Trip to the Cottage is the name of a ceili dance, popular in South Armagh (Keegan).

TRIP TO WHITE CONDUIT.  English, Country Dance Tune (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning. AABB. The melody also appears in John Johnson’s 200 Favourite Country Dances, vol. 8 (London, 1758). White Conduit House was an 18th century pleasure garden. It began as a small alehouse built in the 17th century, completed on the day of the execution of King Charles I, according to tradition, the workmen who built it carousing in celebration (of both events, presumably). It took its name from a conduit faced with white stone in the field opposite. By 1745 the original structure had been replaced or added on with a Long Room, and the grounds had been planned and shaped to include a fishpond and numerous arbours. A fence enclosed the acreage to keep out the curious at work in the nearby fields, and a cricket field laid out in a meadow adjoining the house. It was a popular gathering place for London society, who enjoyed its favourable views to the north of Hampstead and Highgate, and tea in the house and the “genteel boxes” let into the hedges. Although the neighbourhood gradually became less bucolic, White Conduit House survived as an entertainment park until the mid-19th century, when it was replaced by a public house. Thompson (Compleat Collection of 200 Favourite Country Dances, vol. 1), 1757; No. 130.

TRIPPING UPSTAIRS [2]. AKA - “Trip it Up Stairs [2],” "Tripping Up the Stairs." AKA and see “The Jew Jig,” “Sacho’s Jig,” “Sackows,” “Syriacus.” Irish, Jig. D Major. Standard tuning. AAB (Carlin): AABB (Cranitch, Mallinson): AABB’ (Songer): AA'AA'BB (Phillips). A different tune than the similarly entitled “Trip it Up the Stairs.” According to David Taylor (1992, pg. 22), it is his information that this tune is the composition of the great Co. Mayo and New York fiddler John McGrath (1900-1955), who originally entitled it "The Jew Jig" (although Paul de Grae thinks this title may have been used for “Banish Misfortune”). Taylor wrote about McGrath after being inspired by several conversations with McGrath’s nephew, Vincent McGrath, of Drogheda, who presumably passed along McGrath’s title. Sources close to McGrath, however, maintain he only wrote one tune, a reel called “John McGrath’s Composition” that appears in Paddy O’Brien’s tune book. Philippe Varlet points out that the tune was recorded in 1921 by Frank Quinn, and while it is possible that a young McGrath wrote the tune, it is not probable. Source for notated version: mandolinist Mark Bautista via Sue Songer & Lanny Martin (Portland, Oregon) [Songer]. Carlin (Master Collection), 1984; No. 259, pg. 148.
