The Harkle Sporse is a reel I wrote for one of my favourite pubs in the west end of Glasgow, The Sparkle Horse. The setting of many a band meeting of ours, you’ll find it in Partick, just round the corner from Kelvinhall subway station. I like taking the tune at a fairly leisurely pace, but it speeds up nicely too!
