Northumbrian

I’m usually not a big fan of polkas but this one is really nice, especially the offbeat in the B part.
I learned it from the playing of the fiddler Frankie Archer a few days ago in Ghent.
She didn’t remember the name of the tune and both TunePal and FolkFriend failed to recognize it.
All I know is that it comes from Northumbrian bagpipe repertoire.
