Tune of the Day: The Reel of Bogie

Traditional Irish reel

The earliest known reference to this reel is in William Vickers's 1770 Northumbrian dance tune manuscript, but unfortunately the tune was recorded on one of the 31 pages that have not survived to the present day. Fiddler Brian Conway notes how the tune is sometimes known as “The Tramps”, while Michael Coleman called it “Maun's Fancy” on an unreleased side from his last recording session in 1944.
