X:1 T:In Memory of Coleman M:2/2 L:1/8 C:Ed Reavy R:reel N:No tune can adequately commemorate this N:great fiddler. Ed felt that he was the last of the great players, N:and the only one he ever heard who had that strange wildness in N:his playing that only the great ones possess. Ed wrote the tune as N:if Mike were to play it. Perhaps he alone had the tools to do N:it complete justice.
