Another nameless polka ~ ๐Ÿ™‚ ~ and, yes, familiar, though I have a very different take on the A-part. I’ll have to set aside some time, maybe this weekend, to see if I can chase up names for your two recent gan ainms. Curiously, I was listening to Matt Cranitch & friends this morning. I enjoy their musicianship, though they do tend to push things for the punters, tempo-wise… Matt is also a fairly prolific composer of polkas…

I love it that a GHB player on Skye is playing Irish polkas. I so wish we’d headed up there for the Easter holidays, to chase you up Bogman, though I do have a preference Islay malts. That being admitted, I’ve never had a single malt I didn’t appreciate. There’s a love and appreciation for a bit of Scottish swing in Ireland as well, a long history of it…

Gan Ainm

I heard this tune at the Local Pub in Ennis in 2016. Found it in tunepal as Gan Ainm but none of the tunes I saw under that name here in thesession seem to be the same tune.
