Reel Set

I learned this reel in a set of three with The Great North Run ’86, followed by The Dinnington Rant and then The Durham Rangers, which I will submit next. Sounds a little hornpipish?

Dinnibngton Rant

As the name suggests, this is a rant.

Dinnington is a little Northumbrian village to the NW of Newcastle where there are a couple of Victorian Reservoirs which supply Newcastles water. I believe that parsons had something to do with their construction as he installed hydraulic power on Newcastle’s Quayside.

The Angels play this a lot with “Come Dance and Sing” and a rant version of “Flowers of Edinburgh”.
