Newlyn Reel

Also known as Plethen Newlyn, (Plethen-Cornish Reel).
Another tune in response to a recent recording posted by Threepenny Bit.
This tune was apparently collected in the 70’s as a dance for men in the fishing port of Newlyn, Cornwall. Traditionally, it starts slow and ramps up the tempo every two times through.
It doesn’t seem to me typically Cornish but could show how "foreign" interaction found in busy ports might influence local music.

Sounds a bit Klezmerish

A bit like Jump at the Sun, swisspiper?
