This feral A tune has been around for a long time. It's not in a lot of books, but everybody knows it. There are as many versions of this as there are fiddlers. It's all rhythm and not much melody, but fun to play.
I'm not sure about the crusty old guy in the one video link below, but he looks a lot like a fiddler I know from Burford Ontario. Or it might be his uncle.
The other example is by Don Messer from 1950.
