Brendan O’Regan, 3rd polka

Another unusual polka from Brendan O’Regan’s solo recording, the 3rd in a set of 3, following on from "The Sparrow", posted yesterday. Again, I think it may be an original composition.

Further penance? 😛

This reminds me of a children’s ditty, but I can’t remember the name of it.

The Continental, X:2

A version taken from "The Time Is Right", a 2013 album by the Austin band Aidan (https://thesession.org/recordings/6030). Same A section, but a pretty different B section, with more of a kick to it.

Re: The Continental

Original composition by Brendan O’Regan, according to CD sleeve notes.
