… from the playing of Sammi, Johannes and Emma in Neuchatel (Ch) at a local session.
It comes from album "Hills And Hollows" - Mary And Josie Nugent.
Re: Johnny O’Leary’s
I believe this tune is usually played as a polka (e.g. the referenced recording for set dancing). There are two settings in Johnny O’Leary’s book, one (#17) listed as a slow polka/hornpipe, the other (#366) as a polka. I used to have a recording of Denis Murphy and Johnny O’Leary playing this (Ciarán Mac Mathúna introduces music from Clare and Kerry) but it has disappeared. They played this tune (as Murphy’s) as a polka and followed it with The Blue Ribbon https://thesession.org/tunes/5535. It was a cracking set! Maybe this should be migrated to Polkas?
