Don Freake’s

Newfoundland single/polka. Composed by Don Freake, from Boyd’s Cove.

Sounds better played a bit more quickly, to give that "E E2" of the 1st and 5th bars (A Part) and of the 5th bar (B Part) the presumably desired effect.

Aaron Collis & Emilia Bartellas play it together on their duo album. I’ve changed their B Part slightly to my liking. For their original transcription, see here:

Don Freake’s, X:2

Another variant.

Have expanded the B Part, while keeping elements of the original there. Shown here in Edor for easier comparison to X1, will probably play this one in Ador.
