TINKER’S BIB, THE (Práiscín an Tincéara). Irish, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. As it is similar to “White Leaf (The)” this tune is sometimes called “The Green Leaf.” However, these tunes are cognate with, and probably derived from, the Scottish reel “Marquis of Tullibardine (The),” finds researcher Conor Ward.
