GUEST,Donald Help: Galway Farmer (Show of Hands) (13) Galway Farmer(Show of Hands)fiddle reel? 14 Dec 06


One of my mates lent me a copy of a Show of Hands cd, with just a track listing. Track 12 is a thing called Galway Farmer (a song about a guy who backs an long shot in a horse race and wins)
Anyway, there are a couple of short fiddle bits between verses before bursting into a great (and fast!) fiddle reel (to signify the actual race) - does anyone know what the reel is called?

I think the fiddler is Phil Beer, but what's the reel ?
