I just learnt a fiddle variant of this from someone at my local session. It goes down low in the A-part and is single w/o repeats, not double:
T: Mama’s Pet

Compare Dow’s version with this one: https://thesession.org/tunes/1290
Both tunes get played at our session, but I’m told that this one with the Ador B-part is an older setting than the one in Yamadasan’s link. Can anyone confirm this?
It seems the version with both parts in Gmaj was originally a very local East Galway setting, played by Eddie Moloney of Ballinakill. Kevin Crawford, Michael McGoldrick, Frankie Gavin, Catherine McEvoy, and many others recorded and popularised Eddie Moloney’s setting of the tune. Most of them mention Eddie as the direct or indirect source in the notes.
Mama’s Pet (Sligo Version)
It seems Michael Coleman recorded and popularised this Sligo version in 60’s. Joe Burke insists the East Galway version I happened to post is the original and older than the Sligo version. We need to take his comment with a grain of salt simply because he’s a Galway man!
I only heard the Sligo version played by Tyrone fiddler John Weir on the radio around a couple of years ago. He has made a beautiful recording called "An Tris Is A Rian" with Claire Keville and Eithne Ni Dhonaile.
But Michael Coleman died in 1945 didn’t he?
Good man, Paddy. Sorry for my disinterest in Sligo fiddle music. But it is true Coleman recorded and popularised the Sligo version which is different from the East Galway flute version I posted.
Here’s another transcription of the Sligo version: https://thesession.org/tunes/1290/comments#comment213424
And you can watch and listen to Antón MacGabhann play a similar version: http://comhaltas.ie/music/detail/comhaltaslive_202_1_anton_mac_gabhann/
Antón MacGabhann = Tony Smith
He recorded this tune in New York in 1921 according to the notes in the tune book The Mountain Road, notation of tunes from the cd of the same name. On that cd it is played after The Sunny Banks.
