From "Memories from the Holla" (https://thesession.org/recordings/1125)

I think this may be added elsewhere under the "The Humours of Carrigaholt" (https://thesession.org/tunes/1730), but since they’ve got such an unusual setting (doubled first part, single second), I thought I’d add it their setting, as they play it, under the title they’ve given it. I’m assuming for the purposes of musical decency that the original recording was in G and cranked up to Ab, rather than trying to notate it in an unfriendly key. This setting is lovely, but I wish I could think of a satisfactory way to double the second part. Doesn’t feel right playing it single.
