Polka for Matt, A


Matt Cranitch, the well-known fiddle player and scholar from County Cork, came to visit Sandy and me in Maine a few years ago. Matt loves to play polkas, so I composed this three-part tune for him. I play it here with my friends Kevin McElroy on bodhrán, Barbara MacDonald Magone on the piano and, on the fiddle, Meghan Mette, who at the time of recording was a young and enthusiastic sixteen-year-old.
