Yes! I’m pretty sure I’ve heard it/played it - but right now, I can’t think of when/where. I suspect it’s English.

Probably Captain Lanoe’s Quick March

As Lester’s playing it, God alone knows where it originated. He just knows so many tunes!

Re: What tune is that?

no, I don’t think it’s this one, it doesn’t sound like it
although, they’ve got something in common

Re: What tune is that?

Ah! That’s where I learned it! (And it’s not at all similar to Captain Lanoe’s Quick March…)

The recording here says Calliope House (which is equally wrong). The tune can’t be found through Reverend’s ABC tune search either, so possibly it’s a Ronan Hardiman composition.

Re: What tune is that?

yes, they used to play Calliope House before, then they changed it to this one, which is very catchy indeed, and i thought it was somewhat traditional, but who knows, well may be it’s an original

Why can’t they just tittle all the tunes, is it that hard to do!
