The King's Reel

Nora Garver with Gaelwynd


This is a driving Scottish reel that is part of a set on track nine of Gaelwynd's first cd, "Out on the Ocean".  It is just the type of low, growly reel that I like to play (see also "Growling Old Man and Woman" at the end of the "Put Me in a Box" set below).  I learned this reel as a member of the Potomac Valley Scottish Fiddle Club.  You can hear Bill Smith on percussion, Caite McKinney playing long notes on the whistle, and Fred McKinney performing a stellar guitar accompaniment.
