Looks like the first of the 2 "Crowley’s" reels to me.
No, I know this tune, it’s Billy Brocker’s. Em and Joyce play this one as well I think https://thesession.org/tunes/1872.
I agree with you Dow but this is a nice tune setting. Question is whether it deserves it’s own page or a setting in the comments box of Brocker’s.
To save time for those that want to look at Crowley’s:
I like this setting too, Donough. It’s more like what we play here because we have both Crowley’s reels in a set as well. Maybe the orig. source is the same…
Sure doesn’t it all come out of the great musical melting pot. What tunes do you usually play this with in a set?
It doesn’t get put with anything in particular as far as I know - it just happens!
What’s going on with the "other names" section?
……and who was "Billy Brocken" ?
Don’t you really know him? I can’t believe it!
I took the name of this tune from a recording by Paul O’Shaughnessy in a set of two reels: Speed the Plough/ Billy Brocken’s. That’s how he calls it.
also features on one of the Bothyband albums
Nice tune:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGAREuYVNDY
