About this tune
This tune appears under this title in O'Neill's Music of Ireland. It's called "Maud Miller" in 1000 Fiddle Tunes, and "The Strawberry Beds" in Kerr's Merry Melodies. Notation for a version played by Sterling Baker is in The Fiddle Music of Prince Edward Island.
In the 1930s, a well known American recording artist named "Fiddlin' Arthur" Smith composed a completely unrelated tune entitled "Blackberry Blossom" that has since become a bluegrass standard.
