The Egyptian Reel

Not sure the composer of the tune, but I believe it is fairly contemporary. I have heard it for years throughout the almost 20 years of feisanna of Irish Dancing. If anyone knows more about it, I would love to find out more info.

This is the only thing on YouTube I could find

Re: The Egyptian

Awesome, Thanks!

Re: The Egyptian

The Alan Kelly original is in Bm.
Chords for B part are something like |Em A|D G|C#dim F#|F#7 Bm| x 4
transposing to |Dm G|C F|Bdim E|E7 Am|.

The Egyptian, X:2

Previous setting, transposed up to Bmin.

Re: Salamanca Samba

Just updated the name so the original title appears first. Is this a Kelly composition or a McGlynn one? I don’t have the liner notes, but a bunch of old reviews reference it as composed by Arty McGlynn.
