A Bourrée and a Polka from the Sunbeam (#163 and 177)

A bourrée and a polka. The first is Bourrée de Neris (#163), also called Le Timide (played by Patrick Bouffard). The second is called Polka des Gars sometimes, and Polka de Mirepoix other times. In the Bal Folk Tune book it is an unnamed Polka (#177). It’s also the melody I use for The Ballad of the Bachelor!
