Fill Up the Bowl
Back to Fill Up the Bowl
FILL UP THE BOWL. American (?), Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Peter Kennedy suggests a relatedness with the reel "Flowing Bowl (1) (The)" as printed by Francis O'Neill, but they are completely different tunes. The "Fill up the Bowl" melody sounds English in character.
