Canyon Jig


David Reiner has published a number of fiddle books, including Anthology of Fiddle Tunes (Mel Bay). According to Dave, this tune came together in his head while he was hiking with his parents and brother in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. After he returned from the hike he picked up his fiddle and, he writes, 'made a few improvements to the tune, including the ending that tumbles down arpeggios like a waterfall into a canyon.' The great Liz Carroll recreates Dave's musical hiking adventure with her interpretation of this composition.
