Bonkers in Yonkers

A great reel by Joanie Madden of Cherish the Ladies. Played in Bb on track 1 of their cd Woman of the House.

…is Amaj the original tonality of the tune? Or did you transpose it yourself from Bb to A?

It’s played in Bb on the cd so that’s probably the original key. It does seem to suit Bb !

AEAE Fiddle tuning

For those who like to re-tune the fiddle, this finger excellently in AEAE tuning.
