Molly’s Graduation

Another nice tune by Cape Breton fiddler Dougie MacDonald, from the Ring Sessions album. Alan Ng identifies the tune as a strathspey. But it’s played more as a hornpipe, with the exception of the strathspey figure in measures 1, 5 and 13.

To my ear, the tune is a actually variant setting of The Rights of Man:

It also has some similarity to The Ashplant, the one in D major:
