DAVE "NORMAWAY" MACDONALD'S WEDDING REEL. Canadian, Reel (cut time). Canada, Cape Breton. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by Inverness, Cape Breton, fiddler Jerry Holland (1955-2009) for the wedding of inn-keeper MacDonald, who runs a venue for Cape Breton music at his establishment, the Normaway.

The first strain is very similar to "Paddy Kelly's Reel (6)" (Kelly did not usually name his tunes).
