BILLY BALLANTINE'S REEL. English, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. From Northumbrian fife/piccolo player Billy Ballantine (1891-1971). Nigel Gatherer thinks this may be a reworking of Angus Fitchett's tune "J.B. Milne Reel."

Recorded source: Topic Records, Billy Ballantine - "Holey Ha'Penny."
