On Richard Thompson's Rumour & Sigh album, at the end of "Don't Sit on my Jimmy Shands" it morphs into a Scottish dance tune - does anyone know what it's called?

here's one clip, Sandman.

It goes into one part of the Bluebell Polka and then some jig I can't place.

Thank you Sandman, it's the tune from 3:50 I'm after.

It was played by a session band on BBC Radio Scotland "Take the Floor", which I record every week from the webstream.

jesus, what a mess merging the bluebell polka with some jig makes it difficult. a variant of the masons apron, how about a variant of a cacophony. could it be father o flynn at his crucifixion

It does slightly, but I'm wondering if it's one of John Kirkpatrick's tunes?

I think it is a version of "Pet of the Pipers"

https://thesession.org/tunes/5132

Actually, none of the ones listed there are identical to the setting I play either but I'm pretty sure it's the same tune as that on the track.

It is Pet of the Pipers, very similar to the version in Allan's Irish Fiddler.

Pet of the Pipers with very irritating twiddly bits. Having first heard this tune played by JK in Morris On style - that's the way to go for me!!

IMO not enough emphasis on ist and fourth beats, too even for jig playing, but i suppose an improvement on the original mix which was cacophonic to start with

The Bowed Psaltery, is an instrument with limitations, ,it is very difficult to play legato, this is overcome partially by the sympathetic ringing of strings, it has the opposite problems of the hammered dulcimer which is difficult to play staccato and requires damping to stop the continuous ringing of strings
