Glenside or not Glenside ?

Glenside or not Glenside ?

Hello there

Could anyone give me the titles of these polkas ?

I suspect the one that opens and closes the set goes by another name than yet another ‘Glenside’ …

Thanking you in advance

Cheers

I’ve always known it as the Glenside but I believe it’s also known as Mist in the Glen.
Our ceilidh band calls it the Power cut Polka but that’s another story!

The barebones of the Glenside polka nothing more nothing less.

Re: Glenside or not Glenside ?

Glenside No. 1 & Glenside No. 2. In "100 Irish Polkas" edited by Dave Mallinson they are listed as The Kerry Nos. 1 & 2. However, he gives alternative titles:

Kerry No. 1 - Andy Boyle’s/Cathy’s Favourite/Seamus Cussen’s No.2/Pat Horgan’s No. 1

Kerry No. 2 - The Derryveeney/McElroy’s Fancy/Pat Horgan’s No. 2
