I have always loved the Jenny Lind Polka ever since I had first heard it on the end of a Mr Fox song.

What is played with Jenny Lind? - it lilts rather more than the average polka - any suggestions?

I have heard it with Davy Davy Knick Knack. Works pretty well.

It makes a great intro (and interlude) in New York Girls... (Thanks to The Yetties, from whom my old band stole the idea.)

Our contra dance bands plays it with "Heel & Toe Polka" primarily for family or children's dances. The caller has a wonderful circle mixer that goes "heel toe, heel toe, slide slide slide" with some clapping and whatnot. It gets fun to watch as we keep speeding it up. The kids can, of course keep up longer than their parents, and lots of laughing ensues.

Uncle Bernard's / Jenny Lind was (I think) the first track on an Albion Dance band LP in the 1970s, and they were a good match. Haven't heard Uncle B in a while. The Albion's though did a version of 'Jenny' without the key change between A and B parts.

I seem to remember Scan Tester (from a record, not in person!) playing it without the A/B key change and thinking it sounded awful! There's no excuse for doing that really because the two parts, ostensibly in different keys, still contain only the diatonic notes of the key of G.

I may be having a déjà vu, but I think this tune goes nicely on its own, given a bit of diddling around with it. The lads down our pub insist on tagging the song I'll Tell Me Ma on the end of it. Sacrilege maybe but it always went down a storm!

One of the revival old-timey groups - I can't recall which - combined it with 'Year of Jubilo'. It worked well.

Re my previous post. It was the Hollow Rock String Band on their self-titled 1974 Rounder LP
0024. Beaut album.

I need to know a lot more about music, Steve! I don't understand your comment about it having only key of G notes. On a C/G concertina I play one part on one row and one on the other (Can't remember which is which without it in front of me!) because one has an F natural and one has an F#

I go from Jenny Lind into "Girl with the blue dress on" and then a french tune "la Merle".

You should be able to play it just on your G row, Dave, if you're playing a version anything like mine (learned it from that Alistair Anderson album). Just give it a whirl. Dunno how the harmony goes on your box if you do that, mind! All the Fs in my version are F#s, if you take my meaning, and there are no C#s in the tune to muck things up!

It's probably clear from the above that concertinas are alien beasts to me!

The anglo is a mouth organ in c on the middle row, a mouth organ in g on the inside row and various odds, sods and farting noises on the outside row, all fastened together with bellows :-) You would have no trouble picking it up, Steve. I just heard the version you mean - Different to the one I know. Here is the one I know played by the Boat Band with our own Greg Stevens on Banjo. I think the melodeon is G/D though so it is a different key to what I play.

We have played it preceded by "Speed the Plough" in G, then JL in D for A section, G for B section. No F nats needed, tho' I do have them and everything else in my box (B/C) - whether I can find them or not is another matter!

Now with concert screamer in front of me I can say I start on the D note of G row for the A music but when it gets to the B music I do have to switch to the C row to get an F nat. No idea what Key I am supposed to be in but it sounds OK :-)

Jimmy Shand played it with the 'Bluebell Polka' and that's good enough for me!
