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
composed by Paul O’Shaughnessy.

This is the last tune of the set from Barry Kerr and Ruben Bada
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….
