The Hour Before Dawn

A cool reel palyed by Calum Stewart and named "The hour before dawn".

B Part

I’m not sure but It seems the ABC of the B part is quite different from the video…

Another version ?

I hear a different version of this tune on the video. It’s a hard reel to transcribe. Maybe this version is more close to the video. It is a Calum Stewart Composition ?

The Hour Before Dawn, X:3

Fourth Moon’s version
