Larry Reynold’s Fancy

This is first of two jigs off Brid Harper’s album and she credits Jerry Holland with both.
On the fiddle it works better in F. Putting it up to G means top c’s are a stretch

History

Over the years Larry Reynolds has been one of the key people in the Boston area Comhaltas organization. New Hampshire fiddler Jack Perron was so enamoured with the tune Jerry made for Larry that he made an old-style mechanical music box which plays the melody.
