This is about Dalmore music; is the music traditional?

I found this

Then this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQiQUGvf4Nk

I wasn't sure if the Paul Mounsey is traditional?

I couldn't find anything on "Dalmore" in a couple of traditional tune sources, Richard Robinson's Tunebook and thesession.org. It sounds traditional, but I couldn't find any information on it. I'm sure other people here are familiar with the tune. Nice melody, though.

In my search, I learned that The Dalmore claims to be the world's most revered single malt - which probably means none of us can afford it.

It's worse than that Joe, Dalmore holds the record for the worlds most expensive Whisky, a bottle of 62 year old sold at auction in May 2005 for £32000

Dalmore distillery is about 25 miles away from me, and I have visited it several times. I even took George Papavgeris round it one day. It is a very nice malt indeed.
It was founded by a MacKenzie, which explains it's excellence, good taste, and superior quality.

To answer the original question, no it's not traditional. Paul wrote the piece himself. See this page

Is the song they playing Paul's mounsey version or is it another song? They do state its traditional, and it sounds traditional :)

It's a conundrum, runrig. If the young guys who play while teetering on rocks had given some info about the source of the tune, we could be confident it's traditional.

And if Paul Mounsey had actually composed the piece, then the credits linked by Ed ought to say 'c. Paul Mounsey, 20--'

It does sound traditional, but of course, anybody can write a new piece that sounds traditional. It just depends what mood one's muse is in that day. By the way, the second half of the tune is very familiar - there's a famous tune that ends the same way. I just can't remember the name.

I want to know where the B part is. If it's a traditional tune, it's lost its second half.

I'm very confused by the first link; it does sound traditional but doesn't mean it is :)

Yes the second part I'm sure I heard somwhere :)

I hope the second part comes to light sometime.

I came across the tune that ends its same way. It's 'The Maid Behind the Bar.'

YUM pa bum bum bum!

The only thing I seen close was John Ryan's Polka from gaelic storm with the beats on back to titanic album,

du du du du du, du du du, de de ;)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U50hqJS2ock

The beats near the end ;)

After speaking to Paul he confirms he was writing in a specific vein so if you heard it you may be under impression it was similar to other songs.
