Back to Nicky's Archive
NICKY'S ARCHIVE. AKA and see "Teelin Polka (1)." Irish, Barndance. The tune was named "Nicky's Archive" by fiddler Patrick Orceau because he obtained it from Kerry fiddler Nicky McAuliffe and he had no name for it. However, the tune also has the title "Teelin Polka (1)" (named for Teelin, County Donegal), from its appearance in a set of tunes called "The Teelin Polkas."
