Jamaica Jam

Polka taken from Sean Smyth’s album The Blue Fiddle. Lunasa have started playing this polka at their live gigs instead of Ryan’s jig at the end of a great set. The set they now play live is The Roaring Barmaid/Sliabh Russell/Jamaica Jam. The change of rhythm works great.

Great tune.

Re: Jamaica Jam

I like it. I came across it by accident, when looking for the other "Jamaica" polka. The video posted by Bogman is great. (Link to second video no longer works).
