Pur The Orangutan

A punchy reel composed by former Battlefield Band fiddler John McCusker. He first recorded it in his second solo album « Yella Hoose » in 2000 (backed by Ian Carr on the guitar). Then we can hear him play this nice scottish tune on the live album he recorded with Michael McGoldrick and John Doyle. A dynamic reel that deserve to be learnt and played in session ! Standard shape AABB, but with a little difference between the 1st and the 2d times of each part.
