This tune is from Guidewire’s "Live" album, and was written by Brian Finnegan.
Usually it’s played after Brian’s tune Marga’s Moment-

Class tune, I love it, and Margo’s Moment is really good aswell. The Guidewires CD has a great range of tunes like that- I would definitely recomend it!! The timing on the reel is complicated though, and it’s harder than it looks.
