JACKIE COLEMAN'S REEL [1]. AKA - "Farmer Moroney's." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A popular session reel. Jackie Coleman (1928-2001) was a flute and whistle player born in Sheffield, England, to parents from the townland of Knicknahoo, near Gurteen, County Sligo. The family moved back to Gurteen in 1933, moved again to England in 1947, and back once more to Gurteen in 1967. Coleman was a distant relative of famed fiddler Michael Coleman, and played both flute and fiddle. According to Stephen Jardine's Thesis, "A Study of the Composition of Tunes and Their Assimilation into Irish Traditional Dance Music," "Jackie Coleman's" was composed in 1954 by Jackie Coleman himself. The jig "Farewell to Gurteen" is another of Jackie's compositions.
