Shooglenifty tune

Written by Angus Grant, fiddler for the Scottish celto-punk band Shooglenifty. Don’t take the key signature that seriously. The tune is in an Eastern mode of some sort or another, reminiscent of "Kandahar" https://thesession.org/tunes/3310 which I submitted a while back.

They play it both very slow and rather fast. Listen to the recording before making your preference.
