Recently saw Mohsen Amini,Scottish Concertina player in bands IMAR and Talisk at Celtic Colours Festival in Cape Breton Canada. Absolutely phenomenal player . Gave Concertina a lot of good PR at this international festival.

Ive yet to see him in the flesh but i think ive bought most everything he's played on :-) I seem to remember him getting discussed on this forum last year when he was up for Radio 2's young folk musician of the year

Wow. I just read this thread a half hour ago and followed them to this tune, and I’ve now learned it!

Edited to add: The composer plays a C# rather than a B at the end of the fourth measure, but I prefer the B (and the faster tempo) as Ímar plays it.

There's nothing new about it, and not much "traditional" about it, either. Niall Vallely was doing this kind of jazzed-up, scalar noodling over a decade ago, and gobs of others are doing it as well. Having said all that, Mr. Amini is certainly a very good player.

Close, but not quite. Eagle's Whistle is in a triple meter, and l'Air is in duple, so the stresses come out in different places. I wouldnt be surprised, however, if Riopel knew this tune when he wrote the other one and allowed himself to be influenced by it subconsciously.
For what it's worth, L'Air Mignonne shares the first half its A and B parts with The Eagle's Whistle, and so we have an excuse to share this great Boys of the Lough clip:
