Two comments

I post this tune because of a discussion I saw, about the hard fiddle tunes. The last one before I leave Brittany… In fact, the parts B and C are in A dorian, but I couldn’t include any other header in the tune, so it’s just for ear. Liz Carroll took an old tune in two parts, modified it a little, and added two minor parts from her composition. The part B has a strange rythmic end that can’t be written in abc at my knowledge. Have fun…

Why is this published with so many G naturals

Why not rewrite the key signature, it seems like A mixolydian so
D major would have been appropriate, but now I’m all confused
