Heard this at a dance the other night and recorded a snippet of it.

Any one know what tune it is, I know I've heard it before no idea what it's name is.

By the way a member here was in the performance but I have not seen him post here in a while ;)

When it's played at a jam and not for dancing, people sometimes start it slowly and gradually pick up speed, as in a gathering storm...

This tune is tricky and seems to be stressing a bunch of my weak spots because I'm having one heck of time trying to get this tune.

The "process" of "getting it" is addicting though.

Scroll down to "The Gale" (Track 68) if you want to hear a better recording than I posted above.

That sounds very cool, maybe at Fiddle Hell 2017 :)

You know I listen to the Portland Collection all the time. It was not until I heard this tune (played very nicely) at a Dance that, I suddenly HAD TO LEARN it.

Funny how music hits ya.
