I couldn’t resist putting hints of the ‘left hand’ accompaniement in this transcription (indicated by the slurs). But it is only the plain tip of the iceberg, ie; of her simple but exquisitely crafted counterpoint.

There’s like an echo of ‘Scarborough Fair’ in the closing bars.

I must apologise to those who rely solely on the audio link to learn a tune: I realise only now that thesession’s soundfiles’ tempo is way too fast for this tune. I usually go to: to ‘proof’ my submissions and it has a slower tempo for jigs. Which was still a bit fast for this tune…
I suggest you play it slow, more like a waltz, to bring out its full flavour.
