PLETHEN NEWLYN. AKA - "Fisherman's Reel," "Newlyn Reel." This tune from Cornwall, southwest England, was collected in the mid-1970's by Mrs. Esme Francis (harpist for Cornish Gorsedh) from John Williams of Boscregan. Willams, as a boy, used to go to Newlyn on a horse and cart and remembered the fisherman there performing the dance.
