I’m very fond of polkas, and this one’s a keeper! Thanks, brailsford.

Denis O’Keeffe’s, X:2

From the playing of Gerry Harrington on Track 7 of The Fiddle, The Voice where this is credited as Johnny O’Leary’s. Some friends and I play it in a session and call the set the T7 polkas, from the track number of the album we all learned it from.
