I heard this first played by the Swedish band Väsen, and have since been blown away by Punch Brother’s cover of it, I like it because of the ambiguity between A major/minor and dorian that it goes through, with all sorts of fun chromaticism.
There’s a good harmony line to the crotchets in the b part:
AB|c2c2d2d2c2c2|A2A2G2G2^F2^F2| each time that passage comes up, it can be played on one instrument, popping into third position for a bit on the first notes of the second bar for all you standard tuned fiddle and mandolin players (or the dreaded fourth finger!)
