Going To The Races has been added to 3 tunebooks.
The second polka from track 6 of the album Meitheal by Seamus Begley and Steve Cooney. Basically a polka setting of this reel: https://thesession.org/tunes/5444
I don’t know if Seamus actually plays it in E major. The album suffers from a combination of pitch-shift and use of non-concert instrument(s) which makes it hard to determine the original key of the tune.
Kind of looks like the classic ‘Duke of Perth’ eh?
It is "Duke of Perth", Hamish, but that tune is more often played in G in my experience.
