The Maid in the Cherry Tree

A different tune, to my ears, than the "Maid in the Cherry Tree" posted here by Kenny some time ago. This is based on the version in O’Neill’s and the playing of a fiddling friend of mine here in Helena.

The first tune in the ‘Brolum Set’ from the CD ‘In Concert’ with Barra MacNeils.
I’ve never heard it before, so if anyone know the name of this tune, it will be great.
I play the second tune in the set, but i don’t know it’s name…….so anyone.

Thx for the name of the first tune Nico, now I just need the name of the second tune……

Actually, the point was that this is a duplicate, so you should post your setting there, and hopefully Jeremy will delete this post.
