| Dear All, | I am looking for these two tunes, but cannot find them, so help would be very much appreciated: | | 1. Partners in Time (jig by J. Sutherland), the original for "Dancing Girls" | 2. Captain McGuire (reel, traditional). | | Many thanks in advance. | | Best regards | Edwin Werner
The only references to a Captain McGuire that I could find were comments that
it's another name for Tom Doherty's Reel, which is known in Irish circles.
Here's an abc version that I found several places online:
This was apparently transcribed from Liz Carroll's playing, and she of course
didn't play it the same way twice. It may or may not be the Captain McGuire
you're looking for. Also, the transcriber obviously got the key wrong; it's
clearly D dorian, not C major. Maybe I should add it to my collection with
the correct key signature. ;-)

Edwin Werner is looking for these two tunes, but cannot find them, so:
1. Partners in Time (jig by J. Sutherland), the original for "Dancing Girls"
- Marian Anderson plays this tune on her Kangaroo Paw CD. And a lot of pipe
bands seem to like it. See link to the Fiddler's Companion: http://www.ceolas.org/tunes/fc/
