From Track 4 (Polka, Hop Jig, March) of "6 of One, Five of the Other" by An Tua. This is the polka part.
Just learned that this is an A major version of the Munster Bank, usually played in G. But of course I didn’t find that until after I went through the trouble of transcribing it and entering it as a new tune…
A Padraig O’Keeffe tune, Paddy Cronin’s first if I remember right
This setting (number 5) is from a banjo workshop with Fidelma O’Brien in Poitze, Germany.
Dia dhuit. I know this polka as Johnny Leary’s and it doesn’t match the other polkas listed here by that name, nor any of the other tunes listed as Johnny Leary’s or the variant name spellings. I searched through about 15 pages of polkas already on the session in A major and I didn’t find one similar to this. If it turns out to be a duplicate, I’m very sorry for that, but other than that, it’s a great tune.
