SATIN SLIPPER [1], THE (“An Brog Sróil” or “An Slipéar Sróil”). AKA and see “High Road to Galway," "Newcastle Reel (The).” Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Breathnach/Killoran, O'Neill/1850): AA'B (O'Neill/Krassen): The tune was recorded in 1931 by the Siamsa Gaedheal Ceilidhe Band under the title “High Road to Galway.” There is some initial similarity with "Satin Slipper (2) (The)," but then the melodies diverge.
