Tongadale Reel

Here’s a tune I learned from the slow session at the Shoulder of Mutton in Wantage… Can be played fast or slow, and works especially well with a gentle swing.

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to add good youtube links… there are many to try as it’s a popular tune, but here’s a few to try. If you find good ones, please do please add links to the comments below.

Finally (in 2022), we visited Portree in Skye and we got a chance to take a photo of the Tongadale Hotel which the tune is named after (see below).

Nice group playing
Mandolin and guitar
Violin (starts really really slow)
Good swung version
