GUEST,Len Wallace Name of the tune in 'Seige of Innis'? (13) Name of the tune in 'Seige of Innis'? 21 Feb 01

Hello friends,

Here's a difficult one.

There is an Irish set of dances known as "The Seige of Innis" where four dancers face four dancers.

Usually a set of reels/polkas is played for it. The first one seems to be the most common. Played in the key of G the first few notes are (assuming each one is a quarter note): D E D B D G G A B C B A G D D E

What is the name of that tune?

I have been told it may be "Varsovienne". I've tried to find it in my many Irish tune books, but alas no luck.

Can anyone name that tune?

Trying to find it to help my buddy, Charlie King.

Many thanks.
