Hoch Lebe Der Mann Mit Dem Hut

I learned this tune from the album "Der Mann mit dem Hut" by the German folk band Liederjan. I do not know the origins of the melody, though considering that many of the members of Liederjan began as Irish trad musicians and that the tune follows the rhythmic structure of a slide I think it is unlikely that it originates from German traditional music. Whether it was composed by Liederjan or was an Irish tune that I simply had not heard before, I have no way of knowing. It is a lovely melody regardless and in my opinion fits quite nicely when played after the Hare in the Corn and the Star Above the Garter.
