TOMMY PEOPLES’ (REEL) [5]. AKA and see “Turnpike Reel (The).” Irish, Reel. A Major: G Major. Nigel Gatherer feels the ‘A’ part is a version of the old Scottish tune “Clean Peas Straw/Clean Pease Strae.” Tommy Peoples himself has denied authorship of the melody, and says in fact that a number of tunes that carry his name were not composed by him.
