Melody-Only Transcription (PDF)

Adapted from a banjo arrangement in Muller and Koehler's Frailing the 5-String Banjo (the book I used to teach out of)

This reel has definite Celtic origins. The Fiddler's Companion notes some disagreement among the authorities as to whether it was originally Irish or Scottish. It always struck me as Irish. This tune works well slow or fast.
