Newmarket has to be the most prolific source of polkas. Here’s another one, from the playing of Jackie Daly, another prolific source of polkas.

Art O’Keefe’s?

This is completely different than the Art O’Keefe’s I play… but it’s a good tune, I’ve heard it before.

The Newmarket, X:4

Pretty much an amalgamation of the previous versions with some extra bits and bobs. Learned from a ceilidh band tunebook.
