Your tune is a variant of the "Swallowtail Jig"

You may wish to post your tune on that page as a variant, as Jeremy will almost certainly delete the tune that you have just posted as it would be considered as a duplication.

“The Swallowtail” / “The Swallow’s Tail” ~ Nest” / “The Dancing Master”

Key signature: A Dorian

No, I’m not calling it a ‘duplication’, as this is a significant and interesting variant. I started playing this and immediately took it to where we play it, which is different from both, then looked it up and found another take on it on site, courtesy of our beloved webmaster Jeremy. I’ll add out take on it there. Knowing this as an ‘old standard’, but not by the name given, I was sure something of it must be here.

Interesting version Jack, thanks…

Mix!!! ~ like minds and simultaneously… ;-)
