This a rather unusal but beatiful jig from the playing of Gary Shannon.

I don’t have any idea who wrote it, or what the proper name is.

Mickey Dan’s

The proper name for the tune is Mickey Dan’s. You can find it on Lose the Head. It’s a challenging and lovely tune. When you can play this smoothly you know you can play the flute. But I’d caution against learning it from the dots.
