This is a quickstep from Johnny Cunningham album Fair Warning, it’s a kinda march, I don’t know exactly the difference, however is not a reel. enjoy! :)

I think this is a more accurate setting of the way JC plays the tune on the record. It’s almost certain that he would have sourced the tune from Kerr’s Merry Melodies Book 3.
