A bourrée à 3 temps from central France. The tune was written by the renown musican and composer Jean Blanchard, who plays diatonic button accordeon and the Bourbonais (french bagpipes).

This type of dance is in 3/8 time, the tempo shouldn’t be over 80 bpm (dotted crotchet).

Hmm…I tried to edit the abc so that it comes out in proper 3/8 time with 8th and 16th notes, but it became 3/4 with crotchets and 8ths. Never mind…
