The Dancing Master
I looked for this one on the system but couldn’t fins it.
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”

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… 😉
Jack, check your email…
Gem 183 in *the* book is called "The Dancing Master", but the music is 100% like
The Dancing Master, X:3
Almost identical to JACKB’s original setting, with pick-up notes thrown into each repeat.
The Dancing Master, X:4
Transposed down into Emin for direct comparison with The Swallowtail.
