Ger Brooks' Polka


My next door neighbour when I was growing up in Killaloe was known to me as Mister Brooks. He loved to play the accordion, and he had many fine polkas in his repertoire. The polka I play on this track was one of his favourites. In almost sixty years of playing and listening to music I have yet to hear someone else play it. Happy memories of a wonderful neighbour and of his wife and family.
