The Bride’s Reel

Composed by James Scott Skinner. The tune is the last of three that appear in John Doherty’s medley he entitled "Flood on the Holm", which a friend of mine has kindly transcribed for us. Note that in Flood on the Holm, the parts are reversed.

Find the other two tunes in the medley here:

1) The Spinning Wheel https://thesession.org/tunes/8570
2) The Auld Wheel https://thesession.org/tunes/4728

This is one of those tunes like the Bride’s Reel https://thesession.org/tunes/8575 that would work just as well as a double with repeated parts, because of the variation in the phrase endings.

Sorry, I meant like "David Adams".
