Name of Tune

Re: Name of Tune

the YouTube info describes it as ‘The Dusty Miller’ which I only ever heard before as a Bluegrass/old timey tune?
I know the Chieftains have previously dabbled in Appalachian music but this doesnt quite sound like it

Thanks Christy

Re: Name of Tune

Certainly not any tune I know called "Dusty Miller"…

Re: Name of Tune

It’s not "The Dusty Miller" (a slip jig), but reminds me strongly of one of the reels that plays after "The Dusty Miller" in their set.

Re: Name of Tune

See here (track 5) for a list of all the tunes in the Dusty Miller set.

I think it might be the first reel, "Ketch Called Sullivan John."

Re: Name of Tune

I think there must be a few ‘DM’s’ about, the one I know is definitely an old timey reel, but not the one on the vid. All quite confusing.
