Rafferty’s Mustache

In the track notes for his cd The Dangerous Reel, Mike Rafferty says he got this tune from a book by Willie Kelly, but the tune had no name. So they called it Rafferty’s Mustache. He and Mary Rafferty play this in a set beginning with the Aughamore Reel.

Oh, and I’m sure this tune goes by other names, and may already be in the data base here. I searched a bunch of different phrases trying to find a match, but it won’t surprise me if I just missed it somehow. At any rate, Rafferty’s Mustache is how it’s referred to in the Dangerous Reel’s liner notes, so at least it links to the album in the Recordings section. But I’m looking forward to seeing what other names people know this by.

Mary Rafferty is awesome! I’ll have to ask her about that tune!
