    I didn't know this tune, looked it up when I saw the poll, loved it, voted for it, and seem to have contributed to settling the vote. It will take me longer than a week to learn, but here's another nice version on melodeon:

    What a great tune, I love mazurkas. I have been told that this tune is usually played in the key of C, so I gave it a shot on the mandola with some concertina, double bass and piano.

    I love this tune, and recorded it a couple of years ago on mandolin, OM and tenor guitar:

    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin
    Mid-Missouri M-111 octave mandolin
    Ozark tenor guitar

    We've been playing it fairly regularly in our weekly mandolin get togethers since then -- it's a popular tune with my fellow players (and by now a bit more practiced than my old recording).
