This is the first tune of a three higlands set recorded by Altan under the collective name "The Rosses Highlands".
This highland derived from a Scottish strathspey that goes by the name of "Stumpie" or "Buttered Peas" https://thesession.org/tunes/3526.
"Pwt-ar-y-Bys" ~ a Welsh relative

Does anybody know how the other two tunes of the Altan set are called? I like this set a lot and would love to play it.
And possibly 2nd…
The "abcs" to the 2nd tune may be in the "Comments". Before anyone else tells you this, if you have the recording, you’d do far better learning the tunes by ear. Takes longer, but more worthwhile in the long run. Good luck.
Learning by listening
Thanks a lot for the information on the 2nd and 3rd tune. Indeed I had learnt to play some parts of them by listening, but couldn’t finger out some others, so thanks indeed! Also, I always like to read the comments and know as much as possible about the tunes, I find it makes them even more enjoyable.
Here’s Scottish Band Dòchas’s version:
