Tune ID: Téada

Hi all,

Does anyone know another name for "Lady Montgomery’s" reel, as played by Téada? Neither of the tunes by that name on this site are a match. I know I’ve heard it somewhere else, but can’t place it and it’s driving me crazy!

Cheers!
Brett

Tony McManus also calls it "Lady Anne Montgomery’s Reel" on *Ceol More*.

That’s the name this tune is listed (with ABC) in the Fiddler’s Companion:
http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/LADYM_LADYS.htm

There are several tunes with that name, but #3 is the match for Teada’s version, with the alternative title of "The Snow on the Mountain".
But it’s on Altan’s Red Crow under the same name, Lady Montgomery.

Thanks heike! Both Téada and McManus play the tune with the A and B parts swapped around. That’s why I didn’t recognize the dots…

Polkageist, we used to play this one here in Helena, in D, as Lady Montgomery’s, along the lines of Altan’s setting.
