It sounds like Lord McDonald’s, a bit.

In Oklahoma we know this tune as Leather Breeches.

A different Virginia reel!

This doesn’t sound like the Virginia reel that was played back in the seventies by Planxty and other musicians of that era - original one started something like "DBBA B3 B BAdB AFEF"

It’s a different tune; the other virginia reel is also on thesession, in D.
