I was reminded…
I was reminded of this tune as I was browsing through the Shepherd’s Hey: https://thesession.org/tunes/3573
Submitted by Dow.
Walking in the Parlor is a classic Appalachian Fiddle Tune and seems to be a version of the Shepherd’s Hey to my ears. (High part first on it though.)
It’s interesting to me that the North English reels are similar to the USA reels, but in many Irish circles wouldn’t be considered a reel at all based on the make up of the tune.
