Green Mountain Boys, The


I first fell in love with this tune when I heard fiddle master supreme Winston 'Scotty' Fitzgerald from Cape Breton playing it on a recording. I had in my collection a tape of my friend, pianist Barbara MacDonald Magone, playing the jig in two different keys. I sent the recording to pianist Donna Long. Donna recorded the tune, also in the same two musical keys that Barbara had played them in. I am grateful to Donna for this track and to Barbara for the original recording. The tune is named for the Green Mountain Boys, headed by Ethan Allen during the American Revolution in the 1700s.
