Great old double from Rufus Guinchard. I think I remember hearing it was one of the first tunes he learned. I got it from Christina Smith, and it definitely was one of the first Newfoundland tunes I learned. Kind of dumbfounded that it’s not somewhere on youtube, I think of it as being a pretty common tune.
