This afternoon I was in a Starbucks killing a little time before collection a child from school and suddenly realized I was hearing The Redesdale Hornpipe over the sound system under a lot of other arranged music. Checking the screen on which the shop shows what is playing I saw it was a Simon and Garfunkel track called "Fakin' It". I've just dug around a bit and found this Youtube video featuring it . It comes in around 2.03 and is only about 12 seconds.

It would be interesting to know if they ever credited the tune - though given Paul Simon's well know plagerism of Martin Carthy's "SCarborough Fair" perhaps he would call it "The Underhand".........
