You can listen to this tune as the last in a 3 tune set on the Kevin Burke Portland album.  I believe he wrote it with Micheal O Domhnaill.  

Heres my take.. sparse ornaments..basically just the melody.

thank you @mouse !  This is s one of my favorites right now.  Love how the A part goes from minor to major in the B part.  Like winter to spring.. its too gray here...waiting on those trees to start sprouting leaves.

Greg,

I've never heard that tune, but I like it.

Thanks for posting it, the fiddle is sounding good.

Really enjoyed that, Greg! 

It's easy to believe I haven't heard this one before. 

Nice little swing to it.

Appreciate you sharing "Up In The Air" with us!
