Primrose Polka


The Primrose Polka is often attributed to Jimmy Shand and equally often to that prolific composer Anon. Whatever the vagaries of its origin I certainly arranged the music for Jenny Cox at the excellent Concertinas At Witney. The last photo is of yellow Celandines and the delicately pastel Ladies Smock, known in many parts of England, and to me, as Milkmaids. The hedgerows this year are full of them.

I meant this post to be on the 19th of April because it was Primrose Day, as I’m sure you know, but I was so busy cycling that I forgot.
