Emmett’s or Emmet’s?

Good transcription. This great jig is played by Lúnasa in their last album Sé, but they wrote "Emmet’s" with one T, so I think that’s the reason why there’s no link to here from Sé in the recordings section… https://thesession.org/recordings/display/1940
Couldn’t it be fixed? is there any way to link this tune from it?

Ok it’s fixed, since months ago…
By the way this is one of my favorite jigs.

Re: Emmett’s Hedgehog

Composed by Niall Vallely. The name in the title is Emmet Henry, bartender at Mona’s Bar in New York, who "told us a rather bizarre story involving hedgehogs and long-term survival in the wilds!
Somehow the story fitted in with Niall’s need for a tune title and his new jig became
Emmet’s Hedgehog…" (from Lunasa’s Notai tune book, 2007).
