LITTLE POLLY POLKA. English, Polka. D Major ('A' and 'B' parts) & G Major ('C' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune Michael Raven prints differs in the first strain, but his second strain is the same as that of Norfolk musician George H. Watson (c. 1880). The tune was in the repertoire of concertina player and morris dancer Billy Kimber (1872-1961) of Headington Quarry, Oxford, who was recorded in 1951 by Peter Kennedy.
