    This week's winner is The Marquis of Lorne, which is also known as The Sligo Fancy and The Flowers of Atrim. It's had a run as an "Other Tune".. This is a hornpipe, and I LOVE hornpipes!

    I've found several variations of the tune's notation and abc:

    Here are two settings on thesession.org

    Here's one on abcnotation.com

    Here's another on abcnotation.com from John Chambers music book

    Here are some videos:

    Was just going to post a version of this tune here but I notice Barbara has already got it up there as the first one of the examples! I'm actually wearing the same sweater right at this moment, though I can assure you all it has been washed a few times since the video clip was recorded!

    Many thanks Barbara. Hope to see some more versions up here in the next few days.

    This is a really cheerful tune, and very straightforward to play. Barbara has already posted my old version -- it's the third one in her opening post. Played on a banjo uke which I had briefly on loan at the time and set up in mandolin tuning. Somehow, the uke tone suited the tune.

    I struggled with this tune when it came around as an Other Tune and then forgot it. Ten days ago I discovered that it meanwhile became an Official Tune of the Week. So I decided to practice it serious enough to make a decent recording now. May be I should play more Hornpipes.
    The submissions above helped a lot. Nice new take, David. Clear tone as ever.
    And thanks, Barbara, for adding the version of Susan on the hammered dulcimer.

    Nice! I like your rhythm. Hornpipes are great. However many you play already, yes, you should play more.
