Jackie Daly & the McGuire Brothers - Buttons & Bows
I prefer to give some name association for these ‘gan ainms’. I’m sure I have this one from a few other sources and if I find a better name for it, or if anyone else does and can give reference for it - I’ll make the update…
- in memory of and out of respect for a great concertina player…
No longer a ‘gan ainm’ - my misfiring memory should have caught this one, but then it would be firing properly - ‘The Nova Scotia’…

This can also be paired up as second in a set with ‘The Old Blackguard Barndance’ (‘The Irish All Stars’ - 1950s):
Re: The Nova Scotia Barn Dance
Played as ‘Mike’s barndance’ by Phoenix Dance Band on their album All fired up. (Stroud, Glos: Firebird Records, 2016).
Also known as ‘All Star barn dance’ and ‘Nova Scotia polka’.
Alan Ng’s index number for this is 1433 (https://www.irishtune.info/tune/1433/).
Thanks! I’d forgotten to return and make corrections & additions…
