It seems to be hotter than Satan's navel everywhere at the moment so, to all those hot, fretful 'Catters, I dedicate a cool, green, summery little tune. To wherever you are, from deepest Sussex, with best wishes...

Mazurka d'Auvergne

Thanks from Maryland, USA...where it is way too hot to sit in the garden these days. That cooled my soul.

Thanks, Will. Does sound nice in that key. Had been whislting snatches of it yesterday in the more usual key[ish] and was wondering what it was called. Usually known to me as the sleazy mazurka - blame Steve T for that.

Finding dots & abc on assorted sites - does it have other names?

Can't see it immediately in the Lewes favourites files.

Wondering if I have it in a book somewhere before transcribing from C to D or G - no prizes for guessing the instrument - - or even leave it in C and find a capo for E.

The "problem" with lots of the French trad. stuff is that much of it gets passed on from musician to musician at sessions, etc. - but the name or title never gets remembered! I only found out it was called Mazurka d'Auvergne because Alan Day sent me a Duet concertina recording of it by a French player called Thomas Reston. Other players may well have other names for it. It's not in the Lewes Favourites as far as I know, but it's certainly known at local sessions - particularly the monthly French session in the White Horse at Maplehurst.

Al and I play a waltz we call the Rosbif Waltz - because Al learned it when playing in a band called Rosbif. It may well have another, more correct title. The ceilidh band I play in recently started to play a jig we just called "Jig" because our melodeon/sax player had heard it at a session. He then found out it's actually called "Ronde du Quercy" - and so it goes on.

If I didn't know the mazurka was from the Auvergne, "Sleazy Mazurka" sounds pretty good!

We play Mazurka D'Auvernge in North East England. I don't think it is widely played in sessions here, but it came, ultimately from Julian Sutton who plays Melodeon with Kathryn Tickell. We often play it with another Mazurka which I learnt when I was in Julian's Melodeon Class at the Sage in Gateshead. Julian Christened it "Sandy's Favourite" after another member of the class who was particularly fond of it. Thus do tunes get renamed.
