Barlinnie Reel and Fishers Hornpipe

These are some Luker and Southern demos I’m putting up so Emma and Jeremy Phillips can have a listen and play along.

They aren’t real hot quality wise, but the songs will get there in time.

Barlinne Reel is about a nutter in jail. It is based on the Glenville Reel I blogged about a few months ago. Harmony in the chorus.

Long Gone Running in Old Barlinnie

Nobody Knows If I’m Lower or Higher

Been Locked Up for Twenty Mississippi

Play Me a Reel and I’ll Set You On Fire

 

Fisher’s Hornpipe (Didn’t Catch a Thing) is kind of about how fishing can be lame because it gives people too much time to talk to each other. It’s to a well known Turlough O’Carolan tune.
