BASHFUL BACHELOR [2], THE (An Baitsiléir Cúthail). AKA and see "Obelisk Hornpipe," "Shaw's Reel," "Where Did You Find Her? (2)" "Wily Old Bachelor (The)." Irish (originally), Canadian; Hornpipe. Canada, Prince Edward Island. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A different tune than O'Neill's "Bashful Bachelor (1) (The)." "Where Did You Find Her? (2)" is related to "Bashful Bachelor (2) (The)" only in the second part. "Bashful Bachelor (3)" also shares a similar second strain. The first strain is also a "detached" or 'floating' strain, and appears in the "Norfolk Hornpipe (1)," "Men from Ulster (The)," "Walk Your Chalk," Stephen Grier's "Hornpipe (52)" and, in somewhat less similar way, in "Whiddon's Hornpipe." "Doucette's Reel", from Prince Edward Island, also seems related.
