I really like this one. I first heard it played by James Kelly play on ‘the Ring Sessions".

Dougie (the composer) himself calls this Broadcove Bride.

A great tune! I’ve learned it from James Kellys CD, where he for some reason plays it ABB - not sure how other people play it? I guess it might be more common with AABB in sessions.

Re: Dougie MacDonald’s

The tune "Dougie McDonald’s" on the Solas CD "Another Day" is also in the Dougie McDonald Tunebook.
He calls it "Sharon Shannon".
Different to the version in the book Solas plays it double.
There is a Solas live version on youtube:
