Davy Maguire’s (reel)

A version of this tune is played in NE England as a schottische (something like a fling - with a hornpipe ‘swing’), and known as ‘Kafoozalum’, after a bawdy song sung to that tune.

I’ve been looking for the name of this tune for ages. Thanks GM.

Another Highland Fling (which often find second wind as a single reel)

In case it hasn’t caught anyone else’s ear, I know this as a highland fling, and not an uncommon one, but finding the name may take some time… 😏
