I was unsure about ‘titling’ the two barndances known as ‘Lynch’s’. I’m sure I’ve heard other names for them. If I come across them I’ll post them.

Damn Jeremy, you’re a wizard…

Northumbrian version

This tune was picked up by Northumbrian musician Will Atkinson in 1916 before he could play an instrument. It was subsequently passed on to Alistair Anderson as a 3-part setting slightly altered from the Sligo version. AA then taught this 3-part setting to pupils so that is how it is still commonly played in sessions in Northumberland and the Borders. WA never had a name for it, however, so it simply gets called "Will Atkinson’s Schottische". Go here for that version https://thesession.org/tunes/10461.
