I learned this from a box player who says he’s heard it commonly played after the Baltimore Salute (aka Josie McDermott’s, at least around here). No one I’ve played it for knows it. Anyone recognize this? Or even perhaps have a name?

I meant to mention, If this is already posted I apologize, I tried to do a search by abc fragment to make sure it wasn’t but I could have missed it.

It’s Pauline’s Place by PJ King. Sorry, I posted this again recently, not realising it was already here.

Yay! finally, a name! I’m quite impressed, I sent this out into the ether ages ago and it worked, somebody found it and gave it a name. Good stuff happens around here. 🙂 Thanks dow. BTW, i looked at the version you posted and noticed that it truncates the notes below D - which way do you think it was written? My guess would be the original went low like I learned it but since I know so little about the tune that’s just a wild guess.

Should this tune be deleted and posted as a variation of the other?

A lovely version of this tune, labeled Gan Ainm, is on Kate MacNamara’s CD, "Are You the Concertina Player?" (Track 1, 2nd tune)

Re: Pauline’s Place

No - the title accompanying the video clip is ambiguous. "Pauline’s Place" was composed by accordion player P.J. King, as "Dr. Dow" states above. There are 3 reels in the clip. The first is "Pauline’s Place", which is followed by 2 reels, both of which, as far as I know, were composed by Martin Wynne. It would have been more accurate to make the title "Pauline’s Place" followed by 2 of Martin Wynne’s reels.
