Trip to Dingle

This is the last tune of the set Dingle Berries on Lunasa`s album Se. Great polka. I failed to find it anywhere on the net so I had to write it down from the record (from my memory, to be correct, `cause it is not necessarily the exact Lunasa version - it may be slightly different but playable anyway). I suspect there is at least one more polka by the same name.

The Trip To Dingle, X:3

Learned from Alan Kelly himself

(In Alan’s notation there are triplets marked for the 16th notes but I think the way they’re played is more like a straight polka, 16th notes … correct me if I’m wrong Alan!)

Re: The Trip To Dingle

There’s a whistle setting of this tune on Molly’s Revenge’s album "Trio".

Variations from c’s setting, transposed to Dmaj, and with a few other tweaks.

The Trip To Dingle, X:9 & X:10

Whistle friendly settings from the Molly’s Revenge album "Trio".

The Trip To Dingle, X:11

Whistle friendly setting. Closer to the original (without any of the low B’s and A’s, and with a few alternative notes beyond octave jumping those low ones).

The Trip To Dingle, X:12

I learned this great polka recently. This setting is the way I learned it by ear from a concertina player who said he picked up this tune at last year’s Fleadh. Apparently this is the way it was taught to him. Interesting how the parts are played twice!

The Trip To Dingle, X:13

From the playing of Pierre Schryer & Adam Dobres.

The Trip To Dingle, X:14

From the playing of Karen Tweed & Timo Alakotila.
