A version of the popular Cape Breton reel.

Johnny Wilmot composed this tune.

Gabe McVarish’s setting on Daimh “Pirates of Puirt”

is basically this but with a few turns.

Dinny’s Fancy

From album “Waxies dargle: Paddy Ryan’s dream”, track 4, tune 2.
About D2 C2 D2 B,2 measure I approximated in that way because I could not recognize all the right notes.

Re: Dinny’s Fancy

I’d be very surprised if this isn’t here already, possibly in a different key. Certainly on a recording I have somewhere. It may come to me. Anyone ?

Well spotted, Connor.
