Connor’s Horse

From the playing of Patrick Moran & Chris Andrews.

They listed it as (Newfoundland) traditional on their album "No Place Like Home" liner notes. Aside from the two bars of 9/8 (crookedness), reminds me of a few Irish/Scottish tunes - cannot put my finger on which.

Re: Connor’s Horse

That’s similar, granted up an octave for most of the part.

The first tune that ended up coming to mind was The Castle (https://thesession.org/tunes/273 ), probably because of the identical first & fifth bars from some settings.

Re: Connor’s Horse

Agreed. One could even utilize the B part of this tune as a varied repeat of the B part of The Castle jig.
