LARRY REYNOLD'S FANCY. Canadian, Jig. Canada, Cape Breton. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by the late Cape Breton fiddler and composer Jerry Holland (1955-2009) for Boston Irish fiddler Larry Reynolds [1], stalwart of the city's Comhaltas organization. Reynolds was born in 1932 in Ahascragh in Co. Galway. He hosted a Irish pub session in Brighton, Mass., at the Green Briar, where Holland (who was born and grew up in Boston) and friends would play. Paul Stewart Cranford says that New Hampshire fiddler Jack Perron crafted an old-fashioned music box that plays the tune, so much did he like it.
