This tune is from a recording of Danu, I suppose anybody will find another title…

I only know this is not "The Mossy Banks." Pivert, please leave out the wrong alternative title someone added.

The last bar of the A-part sounds distinctly Scots. The rest of it doesn’t particularly, but that’s not to say it’s not.

Learned from a session, but fairly certain it comes from some album. Any help with a correct name would be appreciated.

Peter Carberry recently recorded this tune as an unusual version of The Ladies Pantalettes (aka. The Duke of Leinster’s Wife).

Ladies’ Pantalettes from Peter Carberry “Traditional Irish Music from County Longford”

A version of this tune is also on Peter Carberry’s "Traditional Irish Music from County Longford". Track #2.
I’ve submitted it as X:2 above.

I can’t change the title of X:2 above, which of course should be "The Ladies’ Pantalettes"

Re: John Carty’s

Is this not a version of the Scots/Cape Breton tune "MacKinnon’s Rant"? That’s a reel usually played in A dorian, not the strathspey with that listing on this site. I can’t find the tune here, perhaps I’ll submit it.

Re: John Carty’s

This should be merged with tune 7781. I believe it to be a version of a Scots/Cape Breton reel called "MacKinnon’s Rant", which may not be on this site yet.
