The Buffett Double

Newfoundland reel.

Great Big Sea play it on their album "The Hard and the Easy", and have it listed as a Rufus Guinchard tune.

Might be one of Baxter Wareham’s. He’s from Buffett Harbour, which was abandoned during resettlement ( https://www.mun.ca/mha/resettlement/harbour_buffett_1.php ), and seen a few references to him for the tune.

There was a discussion about it here some time ago, might be a variant of The Laurel Tree ( https://thesession.org/tunes/883 ). See:

The Buffett Double, X:3

From the playing of Great Big Sea.

Subtle differences from X2 (which has been updated to represent Shanneyganock’s playing), the most significant being how the A Part ends the first time through.

The tune is also related to The Blackthorn Stick Reel (https://thesession.org/tunes/18345 ).
