Tune of the Day: Drowsy Maggie

Traditional Irish reel

“Drowsy Maggie”, also known as “Sleepy Maggie”, was a very popular tune in the old days. In its basic form, which is known to most Irish traditional musicians, this reel has a first part in E Dorian and a second part in D major. A third and a fourth part are sometimes played, which are occasionally credited to famous accordion player Joe Cooley, but which actually seem to be traditional.
