Nigel Gatherer says Peter Pratt’s Polka is often played with The Old Polka (which is
popular in Orkney as is this polka) so it seemed an idea to include this tune too.
From Richard Robinson’s Tunebook.

A very cheery tune to get you dancing..

Re: Peter Pratt’s

Peter Pratt was an Orkney fiddle and whistle player, possibly one of the earliest Scottish whistle players ever recorded. There are recordings of him in the British Library sound archives from around the 1950s.
