Not from the Skye Collection [wouldn’t that be cool?] However, I did learn this from somewhere, possibly somewhere online or a tunebook. I don’t know the name so when I played it at my session, they just decided to call it “Armand’s Barndance”. E’ molto originale, no?

Anywho, at first I thought it was a hornpipe but they later told me it was a barndance. Well, I guess from the b part, I believe it.


Ah, crap!

The second ending to the a part… the “G” should be an “F”.

“Gan Ainm”

8 years late, I missed this one, but I know it too, from somewhere. I’ll see what I can dig out, whatever the archive, including this curiously wired brain. 😏

The A part seems a little reminiscent of “The Flowers of Edinburgh” to me, and “The Gallopede”, but the two parts given here, at least initially messing around with this, for me, don’t seem to have much connection other than the key. ( He types furrowing his forehead. 😀 )
