SCOTCH MARY [2]. Irish, Reel (whole time). AKA and see "Bright May Morning (A)," "Charleville Lasses (The)." G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The reel is contained in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of Canon wikipedia:James_Goodman_(musicologist) (County Cork), vol. iii, p. 96 [1]. It is not related to the reel usually known as "Scotch Mary (1)," although Goodman had a version of that tune in his mss. as an untitled reel. However, Fr. John Quinn links Goodman's "Scotch Mary" with a family of tunes that includes O'Neill's "Bright May Morning (A)," "Little Duke's," "Wayside Wagon (The)," "Lady Edmonton's," "Miss Gibson (2)," "Cumberland (The)" and an untitled tune in Breathnach & Small's Ceol Rince na hÉireann vol. 5 (No. 202).
