The West Fork Gals

Old-time tune as played (in Irish style) by Ná Dorsa.

it isn’t proper name .proper name of this polka is barlow knife
na dorsa call whole set bull at the wagon,and second polka in their set is the west fork gals.

This is Barlow Knife. Usually played in WV. Never thought I’d hear it called a polka.

Thanks for the info - and sorry for the wrong name…
"Polka" just seemed to be the closest dance among those listed on "the session" ;
How do you call this kind of tune in West Virginia ?
