The Corporal set
The Corporal/Captain Byng/You're Welcome Home

Short Coated Mary
This set is part of the following collections:


While Ireland has an abundance of polkas, there aren't many in Scotland. There are, however, lots of tunes in 2/4 signature which have some of the same qualities which I love in polkas: there is a beautiful simplicity about them, they're easy to learn, and they're fun!

The middle tune, Captain Byng, was composed by Nathaniel Gow.

This set is part of my Scottish Collection of tunes; for others, check out the Scottish Collection Index
