Dancing Fingers

I have this as "Dancing of Fingers" noted from a 1994 album by fiddler Maire O’Keeffe called ‘An Coisir (House Party). I have no other information about it, although from the sound of it, it may be Canadian.

This tune is also on the first track as Gillies Favourite, the last one of the set entitled Julia’s on Clare McLaughlin and Marianne Campbell’s wonderful album Snap and Roll
