Gerdie’s "hidden" reel

I promised to post this after a recent discussion about this tune being recorded on the Joe Ryan & Gerdie Commane CD, but not being mentioned in the track listings. Interesting tune, a bit reminiscent of the first part of "The Tipsy Sailor" hornpipe. Not having a name for it, I’ve called it after the player who recorded it.

Yeah it does have echoes of the Drunken Sailor. It also reminds me of a take on one of the Bunch of Keys/Paddy On The Turnpike/Cairngorm Brooch family of tunes..
