Captain Tom Connolly’s

Here’s a setting of an Ed Reavy reel which I based on track 1 of Jayne Pomplas’ first album. The first time through the tune, she plays the first two bars in a tasty low variation:
B,C | DB,GC EC~A,2 | G,B,DG FGAF ….
The second time through, she plays a version much more in keeping with Reavy’s version, so I used the higher version as my baseline for those bars. See for the Reavy transcription.
