The Piper on the Hob

I love this tune.Seamus, Ennis,amongst others considered this to be one of the oldest tunes in the Irish repertoire.The name is a probably a contraction.
of "The Piper on the Hob",a nickname for the House Cricket .

seems to be the way I’ve heard the opening bars, also the way the second part finishes seems to vary a good bit.

Wonderful version! Thanks Jeremy.

The Pipe On The Hob, X:3

I learned it this way on the fiddle, which seemed different enough from the existing versions to be worth posting. And amazingly I’ve found an excuse to post my first ABC setting! I’ve found this opening in the A part to be common, with the d^cd dealio, but the C#/Cnat back and forth business in the B part |e2c =cec|e^ce a2g| is I guess not very standard. It’s neat to throw in if others are on-board with it though.
