I like it. Should go well with jigs that have an “English” flavour.

Yes,they seem to be related.

English? Bah… Can’t Welsh tunes have their own flavour? 🙂

There are strong ties, though few want to agree to that… After all, Welsh at one time, language wise, covered a hell of a lot of this wee isle known in the more acceptable collective as ‘Britain’… Loads of tunes were adopted via Britain and elsewhere and given Welsh names, more often in the recent past…

Everybody stole/steals everybody’s tunes. “The Peacemaker,” a hornpipe found in O’Neill’s, is note-for-note, the same tune recorded by Ar Log on Meillionen. I don’t recall the Welsh name. Like it or not, it’s family.
