Title, authorship

I don’t know where I learned this tune, what it is called, and who the author is. My attempts to find this tune on thesession.org proved unsuccessful, though I have a feeling it is here somewhere.

This is one of the tunes that make up "The Stone" set on the Chieftains "An Irish Evening." It comes right before "The Musical Priest."

Jig version…

It IS the "Musical Priest" - played as a jig.

LOL, I think you’re right that’s cool. I’ve heard them do that with at least two other tunes. I would have done this one a little differently (like use the dominant in the a part and the high tonic in the b part), but it’s still a nice tune.
