about

Our ever popular 32½ bar long polka, as learned by Tom from Finnish fiddler Antti Järvelä. This tune generated an entire thread of anger and confusion on the eceilidh mailing list, which remains a career highlight for the band. We use it for the dance '12 meet' as it adds an extra beat for the lead dancer to leap between lines, and because it's funny to watch the caller trying to count to 17.
