CRACOVIENNE (QUICKSTEP). AKA - "Krakovienne," "Krakoviak." AKA and see "Jacket Trimmed in Blue," "I Have a Bonnet Trimmed with Blue (1)," "Walk Jawbone (2)," "Alex Dice." British Isles, American; Polka or Schottishe. USA; New England, Pennsylvania. G Major {Miller & Perron}: G Major ('A' and 'B' parts) & C Major ('C' and 'D' parts) {Howe}. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Bayard (1981) identifies this as an international tune which was once widely known; it has been dated by Boehme to 1842-50. Versions have been published in Germany (Boehme {p. 166, No. 264}) and the British Isles (Kerr {vol. 1, c. 1875, p. 46, and vol. 4, No. 419} and Roche {vol. 2, No. 302, an untitled set dance}), and it has been collected in Pennsylvania (Bayard) and several southern states (e.g. Ford); it is perhaps better known in America under the title "Walk Jawbone (2)." See also the blackface Minstrel variant "Ethiopian Cracovienne."

Printed sources: Howe (1000 Jigs and Reels), c. 1867; p. 48. Miller & Perron (101 Polkas), 1978; No. 34.
