I first learned this tune from a recording by the great Cape Breton fiddler John Campbell. This is a perfect example of the way tunes are shared from one of the Celtic cultures to another. This is a decidedly Irish reel (which everyone else calls Cooley's Reel), but is in the repertoire of a Cape Breton fiddler. Cape Breton itself is interesting in that many people consider its music to more traditional Scottish than that of the homeland! We play it with The Absent Minded Woman.
