Sonny’s Mazurka - traditional
Sam: Another that just started as a ‘warm-up’ jam. Then the harmony part on the gurdy came in and...dip
me in chocolate and call me Dennis!
Ferris: I’ve been playing this tune for years and always loved it. It is also known as Sonny Brogan’s
Mazurka, named after the late Dublin accordion player.
Ruth: Mazurkas are usually associated with French or Eastern European dances, but this one is very definitely Irish.
I really love this tune. It makes me want to dance!
