This polka was written in the 1840s, and is believed to be the tune used by New York dancing master Alan Dodsworth in 1844 when he introduced the polka to America. Today, only the first two parts of this tune usually are played, and it is often used for the "Heel & Toe" polka, which we danced to as kids. Vivian plays the original four part version, backed up by Phil Williams, guitar. Video by Shirley Calvert at the District 9, Washington Old Time Fiddlers Show, Chehalis, WA, September, 2006. http://wotfa.org Phil and Vivian's music is available on CD from Voyager Recordings at www.voyagerrecords.com
