Maeve’s Reel

This tune was written and recorded by the great northern fiddle player, Jim McKillop. His original title for it was Maeve’s Reel. I think Maeve was his wife or daughter, something like that.

Maeve’s, X:3

Version of Maeve’s that I learned from Jim, might be a few variations from how he plays it.
