This tune has been kicking around various players in my home town, Nobody has a name or derivation. Could be Cajun, could be Breton. But a gorgeous tune
It’s on the album One More Dance And Then by the New Victory Band, where it’s part of a set of waltzes: Choices Lynch’s - Cajun Waltz - Banks Of The Dee.
Sounds more like a Hanter Dro, d’accord?
This tune is a well- known waltz. In France, it must be the first waltz you play when you learn diatonic accordion
I’ve always heard it as a cajun waltz… it’s definitely one of the first tune you learn on diatonic G/C (or D/G) accordion in France. It’s played in A minor mostly (on a G/C box), and the melody is slightly different…
En avant blonde, t’as le coeur tendre,
Viens donc m’apprendre à bien danser,
En avant brune, fais ma fortune,
Tu vas m’apprendre à bien valser.
