Back to Delachaple's Reel
DELACHAPLE'S REEL. AKA - "Bha mi Nroir nam earisk." Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Glen (1891) finds the earliest printing of this tune in Angus Cumming's A Collection of Strathspey or Old Highland Reels (1782, No. 7, p. 3). Bremner's "Lady Elgin's Reel" is similar in the first strain. Michael Newton, writing in his blog "The Origins of the Strathspey: A Rebuttal"  believes the correct Scots Gaelic title of Cumming's "Bha mi Nroir nam earisk" should be "Bha mi raoir 'nam chaithris."
