I saw the other one.
I have always known this tune as the Wild Irishman. It’s not too hard but it’s a good rocking standard for the sessions. I don’t hear it much anymore but I imagine it’s time for another wake up call.

‘Me with the floorshow
Kickin’ with your torso
Boys getting high
And the girls even more so
Wave your hands if your not with the… Wild Irishman!’
Thanks, MC, great TuneJockey!

This reel is usually played as a single reel.
Re: The Wild Irishman
Néillidh Boyle used to play this tune with 4 parts, first playing it high and then down the octave. What a great version that is!
