Kelly The Rake

This is in one of my manuscript books. I’ve no idea where I got it from.

The Moll in the Wad

I know this one as "The Moll in the Wad" - Natalie MacMaster plays it with the parts reversed on In My Hands together with the New York Jig and Miss Gordon of Park.

The Moll in the Wad

The tune is also on Buddy MacMaster’s CD called Cape Breton Tradition.
