Gan Ainm

Transcribed from a 1976 recording of Sally Sloane in NSW lilting an old tune she’d learnt from her mother. I haven’t been able to find a similar tune, although the turn reminds me of a scottish reel I’ve heard somewhere. It could be played with the c’s sharpened too.

I’m hoping someone will recognise a family of tunes it may be related to.

Sounds to me like it has bits of "Jig Away The Donkey" [ Fermanagh ] in it, or even tha Shetland reel, "Da Scallowa’ Lasses".
