The Tidley-Idley - A MinorJig

Author: Stephan Deibel
Origin: USA - Cambridge NY

This tune was written by Cambridge NY fiddler Stephan Deibel. It was inspired by the 1963 children's book Burt Dow Deep Water Man, by Robert McClosky. "As a child, I checked this book out of the library so often that they eventually just gave it to me. The Tidley-Idley is Burt's boat, which he and his pet seagull take on an adventure that involves sheltering from a storm inside the stomach of a friendly whale, among other delightful McCloskyisms. The tune mimics how I imagine the rhythym and sound of the Tidley-Idley's make-n-break engine."
