When I searched "Stompin'Tom" all I got was a BUNCH of videos of a guy who goes by the name Stompin' Tom. Any more details on that tune?

Connors. Seems to me I came across a reference to that as a tune title not long ago ... maybe a JP Cormier tune? Billy MacInnis? Maybe it'll come to me .....

Okay, here's Ivan Hicks playing the tune - he says it was composed by Ned Landry.  I have a notion that Landry played with Stompin' Tom at some point.  Used to be in Don Messer's band, but had a solo career as well.  Composed Bowin' the Strings and a few others that have become standards.   All these guys are/were from New Brunswick (the one in Canada!).

Stompin' Tom

Don't have the sheet music, though!

Apparently it's written out in a Mel Bay book called 'Canadian Fiddle Music Volume 1', if you can find that somewhere.

Btw, FYI, Stompin' Tom Connors - so-called for his impressive, um, 'percussion section' - was a singer/songwriter immensely popular with the common people of Canada. He got very little air-play, with radio playlists being made up by potentates in some distant country, who favoured a slick, polished sound - which was not what Tom was about. Nevertheless, he sold tremendous numbers of records in Canada, and sold out arenas.

Most of his songs are - there's no denying - corny - but he wrote a handful of really good ones, in my estimation.
