This tune comes via Bantry fiddler Richard Tisdale at a workshop he gave at the Ballydehob Traditional Music Festival in 2011. He also taught or gave out the notes for, among other tunes,
Flowers of Spring
https://thesession.org/tunes/1283
and The Bluebells are Blooming
https://thesession.org/tunes/4481,
so I simply put Grassy Roads in the middle as a set with a flora/spring-based theme.
