Polska, as in the title, not polka.

Wildepiper and Andy Hornby - where did you get this tune?

Re: Polska Efter Jöns Persson

* Footnote to the above …
Beware the stupidities of auto-translation. The plural of ‘polska’ is ‘polskor’ in Swedish. By coincidence, the word for ‘shoes’ is ‘skor’, so ‘polskor’ gets rendered as ‘pole shoes’. This is actually scribble.

Re: Irish Folk Music

That’s really good, Bazza. I looked through my Swedish records, but I couldn’t find that particular tune. It’s always useful to know where people find the tunes they submit.

Re: Polska Efter Jöns Persson

from an album by Göran Månsson. He’s a folk flautist (like me.) The track is found here:

PS: It’s what we in Sweden call a "6/8s polska" or a "swing polska" (slängpolska) with relatively even beats. Played to a dance form that goes back at least to the 18th Century and popular among fiddlers and nyckelharpa players.

Re: Polska Efter Jöns Persson

Sorry, should read "16-beat polska". (So I’d change the time signature to 6/8.)
