JACKSON'S REEL . AKA and see "Humors of Comer (The)," "Jackson's Heigh-Ho (1)," "Jim McKenna's." Irish, Reel. D Major/Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. The tune dates from at least the 1950's, when a 78 acetate recording of it by Donegal fiddler Neil Dougherty was recorded (Dougherty is known to have visited New York, and was one of Ed Reavy's musical associates in Philadelphia) [Philippe Varlet]. Martin Mulvihill included it in his 1986 collection of tunes under the title "Jim McKenna's" (from whom he collected it), while Bulmer & Sharpley listed it as "Denis Murphy's." The second part of "Sheila Coyle's" resembles the third part of "Jackson's Reel ," as does the second strain of the tune that bears the name "Jim Donaghue's/Jim Donoghue's" (1910-1990), a whistle player from Drimacoo, Monasteraden, Co. Sligo.
