Eliot Grasso’s Tommy People’s

Eliot Grasso’s Tommy People’s

Hello all. On Eliot Grasso’s STANDING ROOM ONLY recording the third tune of track #9 is listed as Tommy Peoples’. The link on the recording page on this site links to Jenny Nettle’s Fancy. That doesn’t sound like the track on the CD to my ear. I’ve also searched tunes with Tommy People’s in the title and haven’t found one that sounds like the CD track. Does anyone have another name for the track on the CD? Maybe my ear is just not picking up the similarity. Here’s a link to the recording track (the tune itself starts about 3:16):

Feargal French - I see a similarity with Peter Street, but I think gimpy nailed it with THE TURNPIKE. Many thanks!

Note that on Ceol Aduaidh, Mairéad and Frankie didn’t have a name for the tune but said they got it from Tommy Peoples.
