From North Cregg-CD "mi da:za"

Is this another version of the tune that starts like this?

efg |: afec dfed | ceBe A….. etc.

Somebody famous recorded it - Sharon Shannon or someone like that.

I prefer the French title - it reminds me of baguettes and pain au raisin. Although, presumably, this is a Quebecois tune.
