Anything For John Joe (reel)
Source: "The Moneymusk" by Hammy Hamilton
Nice tune Gian. This is also known as the Little Bag of Spuds (the Chieftans recorded it on one of their early vinyls way back in the late sixties).
There is a slighlty different tune by this name in Breandan Breathnach’s Ceol Rince na hEireann Vol. IV(?). The following setting is from memory, as my copy of CRE is out of my reach, in a cardboard box somewhere in Latvia. Corrections are welcome:
