Moyasta Polka


Another tune from the repertoire of Mrs. Ellen Galvin. It is played on this track for all of us to enjoy by one of my heroes, Josephine Keegan. Josephine again makes full use of modern recording technology in order to be recorded playing both fiddle and piano. A beautiful blend of West Clare and Northern Ireland fiddling. I have taken the liberty of naming the tune after the home area of Mrs. Galvin in County Clare.
