TINKER’S BIB, THE (Práiscín an Tincéara). AKA - "Tinker's Apron (1) (The)." Irish, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. As it is similar to “White Leaf (The)” this tune is sometimes called “Green Leaf (The).” However, these tunes are cognate with, and probably derived from, the Scottish reel “Marquis of Tullibardine (The),” finds researcher Conor Ward. The similar alternate title "Tinker's Apron (1) (The)" comes from a 1952 recording by the McCusker Brothers Ceilidh Band, but that title is shared as well with an unrelated melody.
