Cooley’s Reel

Hannah suggested this tune after listening to Mad Dog Mcrea (playing Cooley’s) and I had heard it many times played by Threepenny Bit on their album Something (here on Spotify). It is a popular tune and also goes nicely into a number of other tunes (as evidenced by Threepenny Bit and youtube!).

Some useful places to listen to Cooley’s reel on youtube:
Nice and slow on mandolin
Fiddle and guitar
Banjo (guitar and bouzouki in background)
kevin burke fiddle lesson
The Dubliners (50th anniversary concert)
The Peak fiddler
Dervish and session
