I’ve put this down as a strathspey as it definitely works as such (moderate pace, lots of syncopation) and I’ve heard ceilidh bands play it, although it’s a song tune and can be slowed down even further. Love this tune. I’ve put this in because I recently saw this in a whistle tutorial book; they’d put it in there in the key of G, which is a shocker because on your bog-standard D whistle you have to half-hole to play it in G, whereas it plays really easily in A. I was so outraged I had to transpose it!

changed to a march as we have this classification now, and this tune fits it better!
