John Roy Lyall

Not a Reel, but a slow air. Composed by E. Edmund. Who was E. Edmund?

Re: John Roy Lyall

Eddie Edmond (not Edmund). He came I believe from the Inverurie area. John Roy Lyall was Eddie’s father-in-law. He played in ‘Lyall’s Syrupy Five’!

Re: John Roy Lyall

I believe the original setting is in Eb.

Re: John Roy Lyall

How nice to be reminded of this tune! Hebbie Grey taught it to me more years ago than I care to think. The original key is indeed Eb.
