Kitty’s Bonnet

I’m all for simplicity - only came across this tune recently on a record by the MacPeake family from Belfast, released in 1972.
I’ve just found a recording of a version of it - also with the MacPeakes as the source - on "Youtube" [ 2nd jig, starting at 2.36 ] :

Kenny, would this not be in the key of D, despite the fact that there are no C# occurrences, it ends in a suspension but resolves in Bar 1, and despite the box player ending (somewhat suspiciously) on an Amin chord?

I love tunes like this, when the ending launches you into the beginning.


Thanks, "Toppish" - I couldn’t quite figure out the key, so have changed it.
