Way to Shercock

Sometime called The Road to Shercock. Written by Ed Reavy. I was surprised to find such little information about this reel on the internet. What I have put here is a close approximation of the version played by Sheila Maguire on her self-titled CD.

Key?

I’m a bit confused by the marked C naturals when there is not a C sharp in the key signature. Also, is that doubled c in the second complete measure a mistake?

muspc - as a music teacher you are far more qualified than I regarding correct key signatures. Yes, it sound like the doubled c is a mistake. Thanks for catching that.

Key

this is surely D dorian.
