S: My own ceilidh band, not sure exactly where it came from before that. We use it for the Canadian Barndance

The composer is listed as John McColl.

A 2/4 march!

It is a 2/4 march, but limited by the 1/8 note length, I’ve posted it in 4/4 (not that it makes much difference)

The M:2/4, L:1/16 version is this:
