How about Denis Pépin (québec) paying “Un canadien errant”: an overheard (here) tune transformed by one-row magic.

This might be a bit of an obvious one but it does it for me.

Have to admit though that this is one tune, written for the fiddle, that really needs the fiddle.

Many, if not most, of these airs (tunes) are used for songs. If you want good airs, then English traditional music is awash with them.

That may well be true, but no one has posted one. I think my original query still stands.
