Traditional Irish polka I picked up from the Scottish based band Daimh‘ s latest album ’Crossing Point’.
not sure what setting means, a tunes a tune it has to be more or less in tact ot be able to be distinguished from other tunes,now you could set it in another key like say it is supposedly in dmajor and starts on E‘ so you could start on E’flat D’ C# C B Bflat A G# or G so take yer pick
Here’s another duplication of the tune, in case you are looking for it as Johnny Leary’s.
I heard this polka at a session recently and liked it. I was told it was called Johnny Leary’s No. 2 Polka. It’s not the same as any of the three John/Johnny Leary/O’Leary polkas currently on the site, but probably closest to this one (debatable!). It may need it’s own separate entry but for all that it bounces along quite nicely.
Re: Johnny Leary’s
It’s a completely different polka from what’s posted above. I’d be very surprised if it’s not here already, possibly in a different key. In any case, it doesn’t belong here. I have a kind of nagging feeling that “Four Men & A Dog” may have recorded it at one time. Anyone ?
