GUEST,kenny Origins: Glasgow Reel (Davey Arthur) (9) RE: Origins: Glasgow Reel 10 Oct 18

".....Howling Wind was the original name, " -    Not true. The name "The Howling Wind" - another misnomer - was supposedly given to the tune by Irish accordion player Paddy O'Brien.
The tune was called "Tam Lin" , by its' composer Davey Arthur, and recorded by him before any Glasgow group could have played it. How it came to be known as "The Glasgow Reel", I have no idea.
Anyone disagreeing with what the facts I've posted above would be calling Davey Arthur a liar. Now why would he do that ? Do you really think that likely ?
