Adding a better "Huish The Cat" - this video from Ciana also includes a couple other great tunes - "P.M. Donald MacLean of Lewis" & "Lochiel's Welcome to Glasgow"

 

"Huish The Cat" - Jig in D dorian (sheet music)

 

How about another Jig - a Cricket tune? 

I'm pretty sure at least one other Killarney video somewhere - Katie Davis Henderson plays fiddle, Colin Botts plays the guitar for "The Cricket Marches Over the Salt Box" and also "The Silver Spear" & "Contradiction".  

 

The Cricket's March Over The Salt Box Jig - Sheet Music

Also don't think these have been posted. 

"Old Grey Cat" (reel) and "Flop-eared Mule" (polka) performed by Hope Grietzer with Dannielle Spindler Swart (kgs 113).

@elcbk heres another take on The old Grey Cat.  

They do a great job of INTENTIONALLY 😁  imitating a cats meow..lol

So I ran across the tune in The Portland Collection. a couple years ago and played around with it.  Ive always thought that the B part is either where cold frosty mornings B part came from or the other way around.  This is closer to old timey thats in Portland Book..

Seen them, except for the Fiddle Folk Family - GREAT sense of humor! 

Loved their version of "The Old Grey Cat" - thanks!
