From Chris Wood on “Chris Wood & Andy Cutting-Castagnari”
The timing was as near as I could get-listen to the cd to get the feel. Wasn’t sure how to notate the footwork.

Oh Dear!!

Bar 4 should be: |[GB]B [EB]B [GB]B [EB]B|-Sorry!

I think Eliza Carthy recorded a very similar tune. I’ll check tomorrow.

This doesn’t help much, but…

Yeah, this tune is on English fiddler Eliza Carthy’s album “Rice.” She calls it Quebecois. Don’t know what it is called in Quebec.
