The Bride’s Reel
Composed by James Scott Skinner. The tune is the last of three that appear in John Doherty’s medley he entitled "Flood on the Holm", which a friend of mine has kindly transcribed for us. Note that in Flood on the Holm, the parts are reversed.

Hear a clip of the composer playing the tune http://www.abdn.ac.uk/scottskinner/audio.php
This is one of those tunes like the Bride’s Reel https://thesession.org/tunes/8575 that would work just as well as a double with repeated parts, because of the variation in the phrase endings.
Sorry, I meant like "David Adams".
