UPSTAIRS TENT [1] (Thuas Staighre i bPuball). AKA and see "Micho Russell's Reel (3)," "Moving Bog (1) (The)," "Peg McGrath's Reel (1)." Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Roche): AA’B (Breathnach). Breathnach (1976) notes that his source, Micko Russell, did not have a name for it but said that this is what Jimmy Mucaí called it. “Jimmie Ward said that this was not the correct name.” Martin Mulvihill called it “Peg McGrath’s Reel” in his 1985 collection, after hearing it played by that musician in a session at a Fleadh Cheoil in Listowel. The hornpipe "Miss Galvin" is a related tune. Fr. John Quinn links "Upstairs in a Tent (1)" with the "Moving Bog (1) (The)" family of tunes; unusually the second strain of the tunes is the more closely related, with the first strains being cognate but more distantly so than the second strains.
