I like this with an A drone…

and, thusly, thinking of it in A phrygian/dorian.

An Gabhran, X:3

I know this as The Derry Reel. I post it here, as it’s likely a version of An Gabhrán (at least it’s similar enough, and only minor differences in the B-part).

Re: An Gabhrán

Surely the Natural mark in bar 6 of the 2nd part, of the second setting, is intended to be a sharp?

Because that F is already Natural.
