Two polkas paired by John Tams as a tribute to two fine country dance players, Bernard O'Sullivan of County Clare and the late Scan Tester of Sussex. Despite their culturally different upbringings, they both developed remarkably similar styles on their common instrument, the anglo-concertina. Scan Tester's Jenny Lind is one of a number of tunes dedicated to an early superstar - Jenny Lind, a singer known as the “Swedish Nightingale”, who toured Britain in 1847.
