This Cape Breton reel was written by Father Angus Morris, a priest from Mabou. This tune can be found in Brenda Stubbert’s 2nd Collection, published by Cranford Publications. A fun tune, but it can be tricky at times, especially with all the crazy Cape Breton grace notes. In bar A4, it sound like it should go to an E note, but everyone plays it as an A, despite it being an E minor chord.
