  She Put a Knee On the Old Man

This tune is marked "very old" in The Skye Collection of 1887. Its Gaelic title is Chuir I Gln Air a Bhodach, which roughly translates as "She put her knee on the old man". My version came from fiddler Derek Hoy, although the tune has increased in popularity in sessions in Glasgow and Edinburgh of late. A recent development is the playing of the tune as a Strathspey, and then as a reel immediately afterwards, although Derek does not think the tune suits this.
