CLARKE'S FAVORITE. Irish, Reel. A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Eleanor Neary of Chicago recorded this tune in the 1930's and gave it this title. The melody was also in the repertoire of accordion player Paddy Gavin (Balbriggan, Co. Dublin) who played it in a medley entitled "John Bowe's" (the name of another great accordion player).
