This great tune kicks of two albums:

The Lights Of Ranzanico by Diarmaid And Donncha Moynihan ~ where I transcribed this from.

Live Recordings From The William Kennedy Piping Festival ~ there’s a decent YouTube video of McGoldrick playing at this festival with Anxo Lorenzo:

It is also to be found on Texedores de Suaños by Tejedor who are a folk music group from Avilés, Asturias, Spain where this tune originates from.

It is a type of tune known as a muiñeira and there are a few on this database. The muiñeira is actually the dance that fast tunes in 6/8 are played for.
