BLIND POLL. Irish, Air (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. London flute player John Clinton attributed the air to the harper Carolan in his 1841 collection, although on what authority it is not known. The tune does not appear in Donal O'Sullivan's definitive 1958 work on the bard (Carolan: The Life, Times and Music of an Irish Harper).
