Sorry, forgot to name the source of the Water Kelpie tune: Sylvia Wooods, Music Theory & Arranging Techniques for Folk Harps, 1987. The note for the tune just says that it is from the Isle of Man. She calls it The Water Kilpie, but I suspect it is likely to be Kelpie, but that might be my Oz bias coming out: a Kelpie is the wonderful working dog we have here, one of the mainstays of the farming industry.
