February Reel

I first heard this tune on the Magic Square "Traditional Irish Music from Boston" - as played by Dave Cory. I believe it was written by a wonderful fiddle player named Dale Russ although I don’t know the dates. I’ve only heard the tune played on the banjo.

The tune was indeed written by Dale Russ and is the first of a pair of the February Reels. Dale’s composition is slightly different from Dave’s interpretation. I’ll leave it up to Dale to post his versions. I don’t think he wanted anyone to post them on here.
