Patrick O’Connor’s

From Tim Collins - Dancing on Silver.
I notated this in 4/4 but we are only allowed 2/4 polkas here so here it is in 2/4

Why do you enter it as G Major? The tonic is A, making it either A Dorian (if the absent C would be natural if there were any) or A Mixolydian (if the absent C would be a C#).

Tom Barrett’s

From the playing of Paudie O’Connor. The full story will have to wait until tomorrow.

G#s on whistle !!

Here’s one for the whistle players to practice “cross-fingered” upper octave G#s on.
I heard Paudie O’Connor and Aoife O’Keefe play this recently on an archive programme of “Ceili House”, and was immediately attracted to it, and also the polka they played after it, which I’ll post soon. This is the 2nd polka on the first track of Paudie’s solo CD, “Different State”,which was posted by Aidan Crossey.
