Thanks Mike
I learned this from listening to Joe Derrane and Jerry O'Brien, my take being simplified.

I'm not sure if this is Irish or Scottish - but it's a good tune - and it's a march!

Hi Chris,,
well played indeed.It's a Scottish march called  -The Rocks of Brae- it always reminds me of the king of the fairies speeded up

Cheers Jack  🕊

I couldn't think what to play for this month's theme and then it came to me - The Weaver's March and The Quaker. I think this is the first tune 'set' I ever learnt. I learnt the tunes by listening to Tony Hall's brilliant Fieldvole Music record when I got my first pokerwork all those years ago.  Played (as is the original, I think) on a CF box.  I didn't have one of those back then so it must have taken me ages to 'get' the tunes from listening to the LP.
