I first heard this tune from Bob Drouin a fiddle player in Rhode Island, who in turn learned it from Jimmy Devine (ex-yonker-ite turned Vhode Islandah(and quite a big cheese in fiddle circles)) it’s a new(er) tune but no one can remember who wrote it. It’s a solid tune & the rhythmic variations are pretty fun to boot.
Abc transcription bugs
in bar 3 and 7 there are too many notes : | cE~E2 c2c2B |
better is | cE~E2 c2 cB | and that’s the way at least the ‘House Band’ is playing it.
Very nice tune, indeed. I think I have to transform it to ‘D’ so I can play it with my A Overton low whistle.
Joe Thoma’s composition
According to "House Band" sleeve notes, this reel was composed by Joe Thoma, a fiddle player last heard of in Kenmare.
Nice as a 2 part reel (exit middle section)
