This was requested by someone on the “Chiff & Fipple” website, so I’ve posted it here. This is a very fine slow reel, composed by Edinburgh-based Rebecca Knorr, one of the best traditional flute-players in Scotland. It was named after the town in Pennsylvania where Rebecca’s grandmother was born. She has recorded it twice, as a guest on Tony McManus’s first CD and also with the band of which she is a member, “Calluna”.
Great tune, thanks for posting it, Kenny. I just realized that the Tannahill Weavers play this reel in their "Silver Whistle Set" on "Alchemy." They play it, however, as a double reel.
This is not another setting. I’ve just corrected one bar, to match the way that Rebecca Knorr plays it on the CD Calluna. The last bar of the A part, the repeated bar is played as I have modified it.
A great tune by the way. Play it as a slow reel.
