Bill the Weaver’s?

The liner notes on Whistle Stop say that Din Tarrant’s and Bill the Weaver’s are the same tune, but this is the one Brian Hughes plays, not the other entry for Bill the Weaver’s.

As far as I know, Din Tarrant’s is usually played with the A and B parts switched. I entered it the way I heard it on Whistle Stop, though, because I think it sounds better.

I went to Gaelic Roots to hear the Sunday night concert, at Boston College 1997

And Johnny O’Leary played this Din Tarrant’s Polka along with another one which I still don’t know the name. The tunes are listed as the Lonesome Polkas on the Gaelic Roots Cd for that year.

I just played an album on WOMR this past Monday the 23rd 2020 and finally had a name for
1st of Lonesome Polkas. The album was Mighty Session! Kells Music 1997
Track #4
