Another great Ross Ainslie tune. Transcription based on the *Partners in Crime* album with Jarlath Henderson. The tune is described as an "Air and Tune" on the album. I considered transcribing it as a hornpipe, but stuck with a reel for simplicity’s sake.

The boys play this tune on E whistles. For the whistle-impaired, here’s the tune transposed to Emaj:

I did a copy/paste of the abc, but concertina was not able to convert it to a .pdf file.

You have to include values for the X: T: M: L: R: fields or the tune-o-tron cannot read it.
