Fluter’s favourite

Recorded separately by flute players Roger Sherlock and Mick Gavin , but they both had it as a polka. Those c#s really set my teeth on edge !

I got this as a polka from a Conal O’Grada workshop. I believe he called it "The Merry Girl". I searched the database here and found it at :

I believe it’s the same tune just in polka form.
