DARK GIRL DRESSED IN BLUE [3], THE (An Cailín Dubh i bhFeisteas Gorm). AKA and see "This is No My Ain Lassie (2)." Irish, Polka (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This polka is from the northern Irish tradition (i.e. Sligo/Roscommon/Leitrim) rather than the southern Kerry polkas that are more frequently heard. A odd version by Ontario fiddle Dawson Girdwood was set in the key of 'E' Major. See also note for "This is No My Ain Lassie (2)" for more on this polka family.
