Here is an attempt at playing this tune, it's the closest thing to old-time playing that I have in my repertoire. I need to work at the bowing a little more and change up a second pass through with some variation.

That sounds great William. Very clean and I like that version. You are very serious though, for how fun your playing is!

This tune has suffered from great popularity in the last few decades. If a Bluegrass fiddler says they're going to play an old time tune its likely to be this or "St. Anne's Reel," another Canadian tune. Even here in east TN it's used as a teaching tune in young musician programs, an odd choice IMHO.
If you're interested in working on your version, you might recharge your batteries a bit by listening to this recording by Andy DeJarlis, who was the first to publish it in the 1950's, whether or not he was the composer: youtu.be/7RZ25JBzQR8
There are also good versions on YouTube by Reg Bouvette and Patti Kusturok.

Stop me if you've heard this before. So an Irishman and a FHO member from North Carolina meet in the Dublin airport on their way out of Supercuts. What do they play? Answer: youtu.be/klC5BAiznNc

http://youtu.be/klC5BAiznNc   Oh, apparently you have to choose "Rich Text" instead of "Plain Text" and then find the little chain link just after the little happy face guy and put the url in there.  Ok...I never did it this way before, but I guess today that's the way it works.

Peggy, I usually use "Plain text" and if I long press the spot "paste" pops up and when I click it the contents of the clipboard are pasted and turn into a hyperlink. Simple. The problem is if I go back to edit (in this case to delete an accidental attachment) the hyperlink disappears and its just plain text. I'm usually using my Android tablet. Maybe I should tell Eric about this forum quirk.
As far as Supercuts, I guess you get what you pay for. Maybe that's how you can recognize another fiddler in the Dublin airport!

I wasn't sure if it was Canadian, Irish or American, but I knew it was old.

I now see a comment on that duo video from someone suspected of being a fellow FHO member.

William, its not really very old - first published in the 1950's. I grew up in southern New England, and I think I've been playing this one since the 1960's.
The Andy DeJarlis recording is the "original."

I like the Andy Dejarlis recording, very different than what I've been hearing from many players.

1950's is not old at all for a fiddle tune, I thought it may have been from Civil War era or earlier.
