The Hills of Glenurchie This jig was called "There Came a Young Maiden" on the MacLellan Trio's second LP (CX 46). It's been found in many many Scottish and Irish collections • in various settings. Other titles include "Over the Hills" and "The Jolly Corkonian." Although Cape Bretoners generally play this tune in A Minor, we've based this offering on the MacLellans's E Minor setting, with variations as played by a number of Cape Breton fiddlers.
