As popular today as it ever was, this great B flat tune is regarded as a classic of the Northern Ontario repertoire. At different times it has been attributed to both Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario fiddler Rene Cote and Michigan fiddler Henry Thorne (1841-1928) but it seems to go back earlier than either of them. The first part of the tune is almost the same as the B part of a reel called "Good For The Tongue" which appears in a number of 19th century books including Ryan's Mammoth Collection.
