This is Kevin Burke’s version from If the Cap Fits.

Posted by .

If I remember rightly, Kevin Burke does not repeat the 2nd part - it’s an AAB tune (see also discussion on 3-part single reels).

Under Dillon Brown entry in Fiddler’s companion it is listed as an AABB reel:
"DILLON BROWN’S FANCY [2] (Diolún de Brún). AKA - "Dillon Brown." AKA and see "Laington’s Reel," "Langton’s Favorite." Irish, Reel. A Major. Standard. AABB.""

“Dillon Brown’s Fancy” ~ back from the future

Dillon Brown’s Fancy, aka Laington’s Reel [2]
This version was Transcribed by Paul de Grae. I first heard this tune on the cd entitled High Clouds, featuring the Greenfield Dance Band. This tune was part of a set on track 2 as follows: The Silver Spire, The Ships are a Sailing, Dillon Brown’s Fancy.

It seems that Cape Breton fiddlers normally call this reel "Dillon Brown’s" or "Dillon Brown’s Fancy." Another tune with the same title in G was recetly posted: http://www.thesession.org/tunes/6863

X: 3 is Paddy Killoran’s 1939 cylinder recording under the title "Langton’s Favourite".
