The Knitting Reel

Traditional Devon reel, taught to me at a session in Edinburgh. Would be interested if anybody knows who the composer is.

Re: The Knitting

According to the comments on the clip this can not be a *traditional* Devon reel. These guys claim…. "Brand new tune - just written and arranged which is why we are concentrating so hard and trying to remember how it goes!" Good tune though.

Thanks for that recording Rebecca, and yes Gobby I suppose I meant "somebody told me it’s played widely at sessions in Devon these days" as opposed to being a genuinely trad reel!
