The Sparrow - Brendan Regan

This is the first of 2 interesting polkas recorded by Brendan Regan on his Mulligan release in 1991, which I used to have in cassette format, but seem to have misplaced. I think it’s probably an original composition, but in the absence of a cassette insert, can’t be sure about that. I’ll post the 2nd one tomorrow.

Ps….

Just noticed - his name is Brendan O’Regan, not Regan. As a matter of interest, anyone know what he’s up to these days ?
