Jim Hodder’s Reel

This is an Emile Benoit tune and is found in “Kelly Russell’s Collection” of Emile’s and Rufus Guinchard’s tunes, Vol 1, p. 49

Great tune. The B part should be eight bars of 6/4 rather than twelve of 4/4.

At the Spinnaker’s session in Victoria, BC, they play the B part with a hop like this:

Great fun. 🙂
