Tune of the Day: Auvergne Mazurka
Traditional French tune
This catchy tune appears to come from the historic Auvergne region in south-central France. It is usually played in a set with Brezons valse, and as such it was notably recorded by the French folk group Gentiane in the 1970s. Curiously enough, in England the very same tune is also known under the name “Lumpy Custard”.
Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
