The Lowland Reel
Tunes in 'common time' [4/4 & 2/4] which look like reels may not be all they seem when they appear in the Lowland repertoire. This category will look at a number of different types, though one tune may well be playable in different ways; it all comes down to the 'dird'.

this version has the alternative title 'Captain Keeler'.
David Glen, however, has a tune in book 4 of his Collection titled 'Captain Keiller', which has 'Lowland Amusement' as the alternative title, and it is slightly different: http://www.ceolsean.net/
Glen's version, which I have only just discovered, looks more like a lowland version to me. I base this on the 2nd strain which instead of the repeated notes it has runs of four quavers; I'll try and get a performance of this version uploaded; in the meantime, my current performance is HERE
