African American woman cooking as she dreams of her fiddle playing lover. The tune Kitchen Girl comes from West Virginia and is known as a “modal tune” being in neither the key of D or A but “somewhere in between.” Fiddler and folklorist Alan Jabbour and the Hollow Rock String Band helped popularized the melody with their 1967 recording. Jabbour collected the tune from Virginia fiddler Henry Reed. Fiddler Bill Hicks points out that “kitchen girl” was often a term used for a female slave who worked in the kitchen.
