I’m working on a two part reel called “Crowleys Reel”, which I’m sure most of you are familiar with, although I’m not! I’ve always heard a tune by the name of “Master Crowleys Reel” but “Crowleys Reel” is much different and new to me! I love the tune but I’m having trouble finding recordings of it on YouTube! Do any of you play it and if so could you post a recording?! Cheers! I play a Mcneela Anglo c/d.
I like this reel because it's a good crossover and around here in Nova Scotia, both Cape Breton and Irish players know it. But I"m having a hellava time getting it up to speed. Any suggestions for fingerings on a Wheatstone Morse? Or is this tune simply not concertina friendly? Edited to add: just b/c Mohsen Amini can play it at speed doesn't mean that mere mortals can... All tricks and tips appreciated. Christine
I was planning a track to record this week when the The East Neuk of Fife sprang to mind from J. Scott Skinner’s ‘The Harp and Claymore’ Collection. I was just going though the variations when I noticed the tempo – 136bpm! It is ridiculous. I actually think it is too fast – I preferred 130bpm but in homage to the great man and composer here it is at 136 ? You can hear and watch it here. http://simonthoumire.com/the-east-neuk-of-fife-at-136bpm/
