I know this isn’t an Irish tune but it is exceedingly popular in Scottish sessions. It’s often played before or after Dave Richardson’s "McArthur Road". Great tune.

I play it after Reel Beatrice. I agree - great tune!

John, try it after the Bonny Lass Of Fisherrow in C!
I first heard Andy Broon’s in a session in Cambridge, played with a whole load of Shetland tunes like Donald Blue and that one that goes K:A AB|c2ce dcBA|ceef a… can’t remember its name.

Oh yeah I remember - I’ll post it.

Dow, I realised that I knew this "John Spence of Uyeasound" but I had to check the title. Then, I see you’ve posted it. 🙂

Featured on the British TV Show, Peaky Blinders. Episode 4, Season 1 during a wedding. Thats where I first heard it.

Andy Broon’s, X:2

Setting in a tin whistle friendly key: D Major.

For the melody and the ornamentation (basically the two rolls) I had in mind Ciorras version, specially the part where the flutes play it alone.

In this YouTube link where the track in the cd is I have made a comment with links that lead to the tune and the flute part:
