09 Kerry Polka 1:23 min

Maria Cullen O’Dwyer plays a steady version of this famous tune from Co. Kerry in Ireland. Her whistle is given an unusual backing with didgeridoo, bodhrán and clap sticks. The polka is coiled into a foot tapping funky tune. Usually this style is too fast for the bodhrán but by playing with the back of the hand, Simon O’Dwyer is able to split across the beat and essentially half it while Phil Conyngham glues it together with didgeridoo.

Phil Conyngham – didgeridoo

Simon O’Dwyer – hand bodhrán, clap sticks

Recorded at Digital City Studios, Sydney, Australia, 1992
