Dark Girl Dressed in Blue

from Homunculus Mellitus by Ben Paley



For many years a band I play with, The Sussex Pistols, has been playing this polka at the end of every evening. Originally an Irish tune, it’s been taken into the English tradition, and our version probably owes as much to Swedish and American influences, early Rock’n’Roll and Renaissance polyphony as it does to John Doherty. Thanks to my fellow Pistols for this great tune: Vic and Tina Smith, Bing Lyle, Ian Kearey and Dave Levett.
