This is a Jerry Holland tune called "Dave White’s", recorded as the 2nd tune on track 11 of his "Fiddler’s Choice" album ("Glenn and Karl’s Set").
This name has often been erroneously applied to the Phil Cunningham tune "Harsh February" (https://thesession.org/tunes/1655), which appears as the last tune in the same set on Jerry’s album. They’re similar tunes, so the confusion is understandable. And in fact, several people (including the Mulcahy family on their album "The Reel Note") have recorded Phil’s tune and labeled it as "Dave White’s". But as far as I can tell this is the "real" Dave White’s.
