Thread Name: Origin: Bluebell Polka (Jimmy Shand?)
Subject: RE: Origin: Bluebell Polka (Jimmy Shand?)
You would have had to live a very sheltered life not to hear Shand's version in England. That's where I first heard it, nearly 20 years before arriving in Scotland. And in between, my father had a 78 of it in New Zealand.

This sounds like a folk equivalent of being able to think of the William Tell Overture while not being reminded of the Lone Ranger.
