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).

Flop-eared Mule (Polka) Sheet Music - The Session
I'm learning the Old Grey Cat, now. 😊
@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..
Thought I'd add a couple more hoppin' Bunny tunes!
Three Deer And A Hare Jig, by Liz Kane, in D dorian - Sheet Music & midi from thesession.org!
Wild Hares Jig - composed by Paddy Keenan (?) Sheet Music & midi in the link. Lovely Emin tune!
...and a couple tunes to crow about!
The Crow Road Croft, by Lauren MacColl - link is to Sheet Music & midi at thesession.org. I'm having a really hard time calling this a waltz, just doesn't sound like one (but what do I know). Really lovely tune!
The Crow In The Sun (Reel), by Dáithí Sproule - link to Sheet Music & midi. Absolutely beautiful when played as an Air, like by Liz Carroll!
...also, how about kickin' up a couple Kitty tunes!
The Cats of Paphos Reel, by Tina Jordan Rees, in Ador - link is to Sheet Music & midi at thesession.org.
The video is started at 1:16 with The Cats of Paphos. GREAT tune - learning now!
The Three White Cats Jig, link to Sheet music & midi at thesession.org. Happy tune!
Right now, I'M HUNGRY FOR CHICKEN!!!
The Boiling Hen - my new favorite CRITTER tune! No waiting on this one, already started to learn it, can't lose focus on that B part! Sheet music for it in Gdor & also Edor - at thesession.org!
It starts at 1:43, after "Jonny's Flush" (also a great tune)! Played by The McDades, a Canadian Folk band!
Actually, I think there's more than one hen - sounds like they're still alive! 😳
...couldn't resist, maybe someday we'll have microwave ovens like this. (lol) Yep, one of my FAVORITE films... it's addictive. 😎
Hungry for chicken?
Just starting to get some of these last few tunes committed to memory, but another rabbit hole lead me to these wonderful MYTHICAL CRITTER tunes - in my favorite minor keys!
Waltzes & Jigs - I can't resist'em!
"The Unicorn Set" - The Unicorn Waltz, Trip To Pakistan & An Andro from The Tannahill Weavers! Link is to sheet music in Emin & midi at thesession.org - plus great bit of info behind the name of this tune composed by Stuart Morison!
The Unicorn Jig
Composed by Roger Leach - a fairly recent addition to the Session, worth a try! This jig is in Dmin!
