I got that tune off Tannahill Weavers’s Dancing Feet, where else? I tentatively filed it under ‘strathpey’ . More info welcome.
The variations (in the ‘repeat’ sections of each part) is theirs.
It stays within the scottish pipe range.

Suggested set: Play this rather slowly then bolt into Farewell to Erin which shares the same first few beats! https://thesession.org/tunes/33
