The Reefs

Transcribed from Vincent Griffin’s 1977 LP ‘Traditional Fiddle Music from County Clare’. Vincent could not remember where he learned it, nor its name. The name "The Reefs" was given to Robin Morton by Cathal McConnell.

I remember Cathal playing this in a session in Sandy Bell’s some years ago and calling it "The Reefs" - which is obviously a corruption of "Reavy’s". I also remember him saying he thought it was too good a tune to play in a session !

Sorry, I didn’t recognise it, and I should have.

Well, it’s got some very different twists in it. It’s very interesting, Nigel - thanks for posting. It may be worth putting in the comments of Maudabawn in case Jeremy decides to delete it tho’.
