THREE HANDED REEL . AKA and see "Fanny Frail." English, Morris Dance Tune (4/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune, a distanced relative (perhaps derivative) of “Manchester Hornpipe (1),” was collected from musicians and dancers at Bromsberrow Heath, Gloucestershire, in England's Cotswolds. Collector Peter Kennedy recorded it there in October, 1952, from melodeon player Beatrice Hill (who played it originally in the key of 'F', the key of her melodeon).
