La Belle Inconnue

Not a polka, but a fantastic two time bourrée written by Jean Blanchard, this notation of the tune is from Mel Stevens‘ ’The Massif Central Tune Book No.1’ from 1987. There’s a great version of it being played by Cyril Brotto and Stephane Milleret here: (It’s the second tune in the set, the first being Beanfield by Jon Swayne)

I love this tune! 🙂
Belgian folk/rock band ‘Kadril’ does a fun rocked out version.
