LUCY CAMPBELL'S [1] (Luighseach Chaimbhéal). AKA and see "Lady Murray's Reel (1)," "Miss Louisa Campbell’s Delight," "Bridal o't (The)." Irish, Scottish; Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC (Cole): ABCD (Breathnach, Cranitch, Mallinson, Miller & Perron/2006, Mitchell, O'Connor, Prior, Treoir): AA'BBCD (Harker/Rafferty): AABB'CC'DD (Miller & Perron/1977). Breathnach (1963) identifies this tune as originally the Scottish reel "Miss Louisa Campbell’s Delight," first published in 1780 (according to Glen). "Bridal o't (The)" is the name of a song written to the tune. The reel is a staple of modern Irish sessions (although occasionally confused with "Bucks of Oranmore (The)," which has a similar first part). County Sligo fiddler Michael Coleman (1891-1945) recorded the melody in New York in 1935 on a 78 RPM for Decca Records. The Scottish tunes "Cairngorum," "Dear Meal (The)," "Dear Meal is Cheap Again (The)," and "Leap Year (1)" are related to the Irish reel through the strathspeys "Lucy Campbell (3)" and "Lucy Campbell (4)", for which see also Lucy Campbell.
