Anyone know how to play or where I can find tab/abc for this tune off of dan beimborns shatter the calm album?
I figured out the finnish polka but am stumped on the second two tunes in the set.

Like just about any Irish tune, it's on abc Tune Finder (http://jc.tzo.net/~jc/cgi/abc/FindTune?P=o%27keefe%27s+polka&F2=find+%28wide%29&limit=1000). These versions are very bare bones but may give you enough to hang a few decorations on.

hmm. dosnt seem like its the same o'keefe's polka.
I know I've seen notation on thesession.org (and the abc tunefinder) for a o'keefe's polka that was definatly different.
I know dan also calls it the angry swarm of bees but searches for this dont turn anything up either.

This is the melody (more or less) but may be the wrong key.

edit: I think I learned it in C minor, or a step lower than that music is written at least.

thanks. I have to use a capo on the 4th fret to play the finnish so Im sure I'll have to expiriment with the key a bit.
