Minnie Dempsey’s Polka

Composed by Irish-American fiddler Tony DeMarco in honour of his grandmother Philomena Fenimore, who married a New York policeman, Jimmy Dempsey. I couldn’t work out which mode it was in, so I just called it C major.

“Minnie Dempsey’s” ~ C: Tony DeMarco ~ having a bit of fun, D and above 😉

It also goes nicely in D Major too…
