Mimi polka

Where did you get this engaging wee polka dlowder?
Is its composer known?

Mimi, the air hostess who ruled the EU…

The name of this one reminds me of Mimi the enterprising Greek air hostess who ran the EU for six months.

The Greek Prime Minister, Andreas Papandreou, who had left his wife to annex the cute little bombshell, was not in a good way when Greece got the EU Presidency, Jan to June 1994. In fact, he was on the way out.

Mimi tightly controlled everything that happened around him, and ran Europe. Her qualifications for doing this were probably scarifyingly modest.

But we’re all still here..!

And the composer is…

Eoin Duignan, the uiillean piper and whistler who lives in Dingle, County Kerry. It’s on his CD Coumineol. The track is listed as Mimi and the New Generation Polkas but there are three polka’s in the set so don’t know what they are individually called.

Mimi And The New Generation, X:3

A few more variations from SeanKerry for the A Part, as well as a few others in the B Part different from his posting.

Mimi And The New Generation, X:4

Aidan’s recording of this tune is in Ador, so here’s a setting in that key.

Re: Mimi And The New Generation

^I was mistaken, they skipped the first tune and played Mimi’s #2 & #3.
