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).

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.

Re: John Carty’s

It looks like this is called Hiding Daylight in Dark Corners on James Carty’s album of that title — it sounds like that would be John’s title for it. https://thesession.org/tunes/19498 Merge?
