Jig that is paired with Whistling Postman as played by Sean Ryan on "S
Good tune, but why bother with the c sharp, there are no c’s in it. To me, that sounds not like e dorian but e minor. I just like to get it straight.
The key is B minor hence the two sharps in the signature.
No you’re wrong it isn’t.
What key then?
What key then, Bmix?
I don’t think so. Gmaj/Emin-ish, maybe?
I recently had a chance to play this jig in Dublin, together with a certain top-rated flute player. Naomh Padraig Ceili Band played it a few years ago to win the All-Ireland.
I heard this somewhere and scratched it together in this form from recollection. It does seem to be a derivative of Clancy’s Jig as noted in that entry:
Also found it at http://abcnotation.com as something that sounds more like a Contra dance tune:

I think that’s a classic pipe tune
Different version or different tune?
Since 1980 I play a tune "Katies Rambles" which sounds to me like a quite different version. A simple sound file can be heard here: http://www.anglo-concertina.net/sound/Kathies_Rambles.MP3
As a forgot from which source I learned the tune, I did some internet research a found the tune almost as I play it at: http://www.folktunefinder.com/tune/23668/
Here is the version as I play it:

The B Part is eerily the like B Part of The Sailor’s Wife (https://thesession.org/tunes/3140), albeit in a different key.
Katy’s Rambles, X:5
From the playing of Amarillis.
CURIOUS AS TO HOW A JIG IS INSERTED WHEN THE TUNE ON THE CD IS A DIFF TUNE…
You don’t need to yell. 🙂 Presumably you’re asking why an album links to this tune? By default, the site just attempts to link by name, but not all tunes with the same name are the same tune. You can click "edit" on the album page to substitute the correct tune (by name or ID if you know it).
Found this in a book edited by David Taylor.
