LUCY CAMPBELL [2] (Luighseach Chaimbéal). Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABCD. A variant of "Lucy Campbell (1)," and ultimately of the Scottish strathspey "Lucy Campbell (4)" (see also the Scots "Dear Meal (The)," "Leap Year (1)," "Cairngorum"). Breathnach (1976) notes his version in CRÉ II (No. 185) is "given to illustrate a certain style of piping" (Breathnach prints another version in CRÉ I, No. 154.), and, in fact, his source (Andy Conroy) plays the piping version recorded in 1924 by Michael Gallagher, a Leitrim flute player who learned the pipes after he emigrated to the United States. Those familiar with Michael Coleman's virtuoso fiddle setting in "Lucy Campbell (1)" will find this pipe setting divergent in several places.
