CREAMER'S REEL. AKA - "Charlie Harris's (1)," "Creamery (The)," "Michael Cramer's." AKA and see "Tinker's Daughter (The)." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "The Creamery" title comes from Cherish the Ladies flute player Joanie Madden. Mulvihill notes: "Played by Jimmy McGreevy." Michael McNamara, the Leitrim flute player and scion of the famous musical family, says that Michael Creamer was an itinerant labourer who came to the Leitrim area from northern Ireland. Creamer played the whistle and knew about a dozen tunes, but always started the evening with this one, which entered local tradition and was named in his honor.
