“Brian Luby’s Polka” ~ something from Sligo for Peter

Another from the playing of John Egan, flute player from Riverstown, County Sligo, who had a store of fine polkas and other tunes…

Lead-ins and penultimate bars - other possibilities ~

D Major, not d minor ~ :-/

Damn, I missed by one line. That’s what I get for not paying full attention… Now to see what this is like in d minor… 8-)

Interesting… :-D

in D minor that’s a mmmmm, very special, blend of Irish and Eastern music ;-)

Nice link SP, the similarities are clearly there. They might even make an interesting set…
