The Pig

A simple wee polka from the playing of Harry Bradley and Paul O’Shaughnessy. Paudie O’Connor recorded it recently, too, but in a different key.

Great tune! Harry writes something very funny about it in the notes.

Very sticky

Fun to play. This tune is now lodged in my head and won’t stop playing. Aaaagh. On the other hand, my (trad loathing) daughter poked her head in the door and said that she really likes polkas.

Different key, how are you! This is just a transposition up one tone of Joe Liddy’s composition, "Dawn of Hope Bridge" (Leitrim Fiddler, 2, 23)
