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!

Ferris - Swayne pipes in G
Ruth - hurdy gurdy
