Name of this French mazurka ?

Re: Name of this French mazurka ?

I first heard this tune in the 70’s from the French Band ‘Gentiane ’ album ‘Musique d’Auvergne’ I think it was only ever titled ‘Mazurka’ on the record - but most French trad music fans in the UK seem to know it.

I learned it in a session from a concertina player, Alan Day, in set with ‘Brezon Waltz’ - dots and abc at the above site. They make a really nice pair of tunes. (Check out the CD: ‘Lady Pentweazle’s Maggot’).
