Nine comments

Another tune composed by Northumbrian fiddler Willy Taylor, often played in a set with ‘Shirley’s’ and ‘The Pearl Wedding’.

Tune type

The ends of section feel more like hornpipe endings or is that just me.
Donough

One of the characteristics of Northumbrian and Scottish reels is that their structure is more hornpipe like in that they are based round arpeggios that go all over the place, and the section endings either contain 3 crotchets or similar. I think I mentioned this in the dicussion thread on "Northumbrian tunes" the other day.

Tich’s Reel

Setting from the playing of the composer himself (play it with a lot of swing):
