This is the opening tune of Deaf Shepherd’s album ‘Ae Spark O Nature’s Fire’ (1996). It’s a different tune to the one linked to the album in the recording section, and I couldn’t find it elsewhere on thesession.org.
The link in the recording section now goes to this tune - yay!
I would say it is a variant of The Swaggering Jig - the tune The Bothy Band called “Give us a Drink of Water.
But IMO best left here, as it would get obscured by the new system if submitted on that page.
Dash it all!
One of the ‘Bothy Band compressed-for-GHB’ genre of tunes?
