Glen Helen

I first learned the stormy night reel and searching for some nice version I found the tune in a set with this Glen Helen in Thunderhead album from Malcolm Dalglish and Grey Larsen. It is a lovely tune with a haunting feeling. It is great how f sharp and c sharp are placed there. I signed the tune as D dorian but it jumps between D dorian and D major. It seems a very recent tune but I don’t know who is the composer. Enjoy

Re: Glen Helen

If you replace “2” by “[2” in your ABC, the second volta brackets will show up as expected.

Thank you for the suggestion Harald. I have updated the abc.
