I don’t have the recording you transcribed this from, G.M., so I’m not at all questioning your ear, but I’ve more often heard bar 2 of the B Part as |e2 fg2 f efd cBA|.

Nice tune.

Padraig O”Keefe’s Slide

The Slides are the last track on the Bakerswell LP & are said to come from the playing of Padraig O"Keefe.

The 2nd one is already posted here as Bowna:
https://thesession.org/tunes/3829

But what is the name of this first one?

Spot on TomR - Ta muchly!

Dervish

My transcription from Dervish:

d2B AFA ded d2A|def gfe fed BAB|
d2B AFA ded d2e|1f2b afd efe dfe:|2f2b afd efe def||
~g3 bge ~f3 afd|e2f afe fed BAB|
d2B AFA ded d2e|1f2b afd efe def:|2f2b afd efe dfe||

An oft repeated phrase ~ there’s a dup over here ~ 😏

A slightly different take on it…

added Dervish as setting

I added PJ’s Dervish transcription as a setting… hope that is OK.

Glentown Frolics No. 2, X:5

From the playing of Aly Bain And Phil Cunningham.

The Gleanntan Frolics, X:6

From the playing of North Cregg.

The way they play the tune reminded me a bit of the first two parts of Leslie’s March (https://thesession.org/tunes/987 ).
