This is the third tune of a polka set on Track 1 of Jackie Daly’s 1995 Gael-Linn recording, "Many’s A Wild Night."
The other tunes in the set, "Many A Wild Night" and "All Along The River Bank" are already in the database here. Maybe this one is too:-)although a search using the various fragments of this transcription came up empty.
In the A part it’s nice to drop the first G in the fourth bar an octave, sometimes.
You a Irish Traditional Music pedal steel player? No problem. You can work your part out from this link.

Re: The Christmas
The Christmas Polka … watch out for the gear change. ;-)
Played on Mandolin, English Concertina, Hammered Dulcimer, Nyckelharpa & Bodhran.
Well, it seemed like a good time of year to put this video together. ;-)
