LORD BANFF'S REEL (Ríl an Tiarna Banff). Irish, Reel. E Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. A reel-time version of the Scottish "Lord Banff's Strathspey." Breathnach (1996) notes that it is unusual to have an Irish reel set in the key of E Major, but that "some musicians-particularly fiddlers-like to have the occasional one as a challenge."
