I got this reel off a recording by fiddlehead.

It’s played as a slow reel in a set before the lads of laois and the curlew

This was written by someone up in olympia, Washington state in the us. Washington state lays on the Juan de Fuca plate, hence the name.

Someone up in Olympia says…

I wrote this tune in 2001 at the Centrum FiddleTunes festival, on a bluff overlooking the Puget Sound. Fort Worden, where the festival is held, is situated where the Pugest Sound proper and the Strait of Juan de Fuca meet (the Strait is between Washington and Vancouver Island, btw). I used to study with Anthea of Fiddlehead and still play a lot of tunes with her, and it ended up on a Fiddlehead recording.
