Reavy’s

This appears to be the last tune from ‘Paddy O’Brien’s Sets: Tune Sets Arranged by Paddy O’Brien, Co. Tipperary’, edited by Dave Gabol and John Walsh and available at Ceolas-

http://www.ceolas.org/tunes/

That isn’t already in the database. Not sure whether it was penned by Ed Reavy, or if that’s where Paddy O’Brien got it from, but a good tune none-the-less. In Paddy’s Sets, it sits first in a set followed by ‘The Providence’ and then ‘The Peeler’s Jacket’.

Move the repeats…

to include the pick up notes at the beginning of each section, otherwise you’re a beat short. Small detail, but as the dots have yet to be generated…

Thanks, just changed it. Still kind of new to ABC’s. I’m thinking Jeremy or somebody had to edit some of the others that I’ve submitted. Appreciate you spotting it.

Agreed, quite similar, though I didn’t get the hornpipe impression.

This is the Atlantic Wave which is here already. It’s a good one, but I’m not aware of it being a Reavy tune.

Reavy’s ~ The Atlantic Wave

So it is, so it is. This collection was from a manuscript given to Dave Gabol by a Dan Larkin, landlord of The Barge Inn, aka Larkin’s (Garrykennedy Co. Tipp) and is supposed to be from Paddy O’Brien’s own hand. The editor’s notes say "Not sure these 3 are a set! (1st is a hornpipe, isn’t it? And the next 2 are reels). There is also a question mark next to Ed Reavy’s name on the sheet for this tune. Sorry, more questions and less answers!

See Fidler’s Companion:
ATLANTIC WAVE, THE. AKA and see "The Atlantic Hornpipe," "Atlantic Roar," "Tuam na Farraige." Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard. AABB. Composition credited to Martin Muhaire in publisher Mel Bay’s Irish Session Tune Book.

This is the one on the CD
