Manx answer to Kesh?

"I’ve just recorded a CD with the schwester called Tree Baatyn Beggey (translates as Three Little Boats - a joke because the tune of the same name is our answer to the Kesh - i.e. overplayed :-)"

Just to be clear, Three Poor Fisherman (Tree Eeasteyryn Boghtey) is a completely different tune to Three Little Boats, so I’ve deleted it from the ‘also known as.’ Tree Eeasteyryn Boghtey is a great slow air, and I’ll put it up soon!
