The Merry Blacksmith and The Banshee. Definitely a bit rough, a friend and I recorded these as a speed reference for other members of the Oxford Fiddle Group before we played these tunes for Irish dancers.

Another fine set of tunes.  I first heard the Merry Blacksmith from Kentucky fiddle tune collector Bruce Greene.  He had learned a version of it in KY.  It had another name- Sleigh Ride or something.  It's been a long time.  I heard him play it at an old-time gathering in French Lick, IN back in the mid-1970s.
