Thanks to David50 for coming up with this setting to make it easier to play on a D whistle

Re: The Snow On The Mountain

Hi there. The tune on my cd is called Snow on the Mountain and isn’t the tune above. It is a slip jig. Thanks Josephine Marsh

I edited the recordings link so that Josephine’s recording doesn’t link here.
