BOB McQUILLAN'S. Scottish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning. AA'BB'. Although the tune has been credited to Peterborough, New Hampshire, composer, piano and accordion player Bob McQuillen, the tune was actually composed in his honor by Shetland fiddler Aly Bain, perhaps to return the favor for McQuillan's tune "Aly Bain." It appears as "Maud McQuillan's" in Tommy Walshe's book Irish Tin Whistle Legends, where it is transcribed from Míchéal Ó hAlmhain's playing ("Maud McQuillen's" will be recognized as a corruption of the composer's name, Bob McQuillen). The tune has gained some currency in Ireland, played by fiddler Maire O'Keeffe and recorded by the band Arcady.
Recorded source: Shanachie Records, Arcady.
