Tommy People’s [Mazurka] (D)

This mazurka, “Tommy Peoples,'”  is the first mazurka on track two of Frankie Kennedy and Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh 1982 recording Ceol Aduaidh (North Music), as well as on an old cassette that Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh [Mar-aid ne Mooney[1] recorded with her father Proinsias Ó Maonaigh [Francie O’Mooney] (1922-2006), probably back in the 1970’s entitled Fiddlesticks: Irish Traditional Music from Donegal. This tune is again the first in the same set, and is track 13 on the cassette.  A mazurka is a tune that is played something like a fast waltz.
