This is part 1 (The March) of a three-part tune that ends Airla’s "The Eagle’s Whistle".
I find this tune terrific. It starts as a march, then turns to a jig, then again it turns to a reel. The main theme is always clearly recognizable, and it’s given a new twist as the rhythm changes. Great.
I forgot to add: I’ll also post the next two parts.
Is the jig this one https://thesession.org/tunes/2637
Yes! It’s almost the same. Accordingly, the second part I posted was deleted as duplicated.
