Six comments

This is not a polka, but a highland, which im guessing, is something like a march. Its from teada’s, "give us a penny and let us be gone" album. They play it in A, but D is easier for flute/whistle.

Have fun with it!

"Highland Chluain Ard" ~ Teada are playing it in A ~ nice too

I had a very bad recording of this track, sadly, as yet, I don’t have the album myself, but even as a bad recording it was a joy to listen to…

i like the triplets in that version

Dont play this like a polka, its swung more-like a horpipe/march

Highland Flings are 4/4 and swung

It’s a ‘Highland Fling’… Do an open search, go to ‘Tunes’, then ‘Search’, and just enter either or both and don’t select a tune type or a key, and click GO ~ then check out the results… you could do the same thing in ‘Discussions’ with interesting results…
