"Joey Beaton’s" ~ Sadly no comment! & mine is negative ~

This is not Donald Angus Beaton’s 4-part single reel …

I’ll drop a line to errik and see if he can tell us more? 😏

A fine reel if you ask me. It’s part of a set on Cóisir: House Party by Máire O’Keeffe.

Joey Beaton’s, X:2

This setting was taken from Cape Breton piper Paul MacNeill on the album "Traditional Music from Cape Breton". He plays this in the more dance-oriented Cape Breton style which is so different from competitive and British army playing.
