AGGIE'S MAZURKA. AKA - "Aggie's Waltz." AKA and see "Valse du coq." Canadian, Irish; Mazurka and Waltz (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune entered Irish tradition from the playing of Seamus Egan, who recorded it in 1996. However, Egan obtained the tune fromfiddler Ron Fromanger, from Newfoundland. It is cognate with a waltz entitled "Valse du coq," recorded by Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard (1873-1947) in 1930, and this may be the ultimate source of the tune. See also Michael Coleman's related waltz "Men of the West (1)."

Additional notes

Recorded sources : - Shanachie 34015, Seamus Egan - "Traditional Music of Ireland" (1986). Sharon Shannon - "Renegade" (2006).
