The Corporal

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.
