There is also a tune called "The Concertina Reel" which, I believe, is one of Will Harmon’s favourite tunes. 🙂

And now a nice daggy hornpipe to add to the Concertina set. Perhaps Ahtoll Highlanders is also known as the Concertina Jig?
Sigh. 🙂

A friend of mine got this from Kevin Crawford at a workshop under the title "Mrs Casey’s Hornpipe". A few small differences in how he played it

Here’s the version taught by Edel Fox at Catskill Irish Arts Week. There’s also a version in the Martin Mulvihill Collection, where it’s called Brendan’s Fancy.
