I’ve heard this played in B minor in sessions around Scotland -the first part is similar to the Stockton’s Wing tune Aaron’s Key

This is the last tune of the set from Barry Kerr and Ruben Bada
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF–f7JxFPk

The first part is quite reminiscent of the Lilting banshee but Barry plays it three times in three very different ways. I’ve tried to transcribe what I think the basic version may be.

The other tunes in the set are versions of these….
