Default Re: Rakes of Mallow pipe tune





Greetings to All,

In my five pipe band playing history... two were
in very old Irish pipe bands... one dating from the
mid-1920s... and the other... from the mid-1890s.

And both were filled with the Older Fellows that
one finds in such settings... and who knew a devil
of a lot about the instrument... the playing... and the
music !!

And, up until today... and this Post(!!)... I had never
even heard... that "Rakes"... was anything other than
a 2-part reel.

Patrick!!... (and all such folk on this Lovely Forum)...
Thank You!!... for your site... and for your work !!... :)

The education... that comes from and out of this
oh-so-remarkable BD Forum... and other sites...
such as Patrick's... is quite... and shall probably
remain... beyond any proper assessment(!!)... as
they so well serve... to bring Light... to the page...

And once and again... Ain't we lucky? Ain't we just?!

Regards to All,

Pip01
