"Gan Ainm" ~ another one seeking a name 😎

Transcribed from the playing of Matt Cunningham & family…

Good one, "C" - I’ll have to learn it. Shame that you don’t have a title for it. Yes, I know it’s often notoriously difficult to assign names to polkas. But this one is somehow distinctive, so it might well have a title.

Until such time as we do have a name, I suppose we could always call it "Cunningham’s Polka" …

Matt does throw some of his own compositions into the mix in his later recordings, but I don’t think this is one. Yes, I tend to hesitate adding new tunes I’ve no name for or can’t remember, or find my notes for it, preferring to add them with an identity. I have a lot of ‘gan ainms’… 🙁 😉
