“John Collin’s Polka”

~ from the playing of Paudie O’Connor & John O’Brien, two excellent musicians who together have made one fine recording in “Wind & Reeds”.

Yes! Recommended! 😎 ~ great box playing, great piping, great whistle playing too, great spirit…

This is the third of three polkas, track 1…
