Really, great job on this.  I always heard it called the Growling Old Man and the Grumbling Old Woman.  You really have conjured up a really nice growl in the growling old man's low, coarse part.  Some fiddlers would skip the last time through the low part theme, and jump right into the high part-  because the old woman, of course, was always interrupting the old man.  The fiddle tune as an exercise in narrative music!
