Mountain Lark

This was what piper Billy Andrews played on one of his 78s after the single jig Ask My Father: http://thesession.org/tunes/2288 Topic issued an LP in the 1970s of 78s of Andrews and Waterford piper Liam Walsh; this side was one of the cuts of Andrews. In the liner notes piper Sean Reid admits that the label on the original disc was gone so the titles he used were conjecture; he used this name for this tune as it is basically the Mountain Lark or Steampacket reel, converted from 4/4 to 12/8.
