Smell of the Turf

A reel learned from Mick Moloney’s "Strings Attached." According to him, it has the "smell of the turf" on it.

A part very much likeFlower of the Flock. B part also similar.

Yes it does, Will, now that I look a little closer. I searched for the beginning phrase |DEGA B| to make sure the tune hadn’t been submitted under another name. Flower of the Flock did appear in the results, and I did give it a cursory glance. At the time, it seemed like a completely different tune; after a closer look, they are very much alike. A different setting perhaps, or just my ear-learning peculiarities?
