Old French - D MajorReel

Author: Traditional
Origin: Canada - Quebec

The original provenance of this tune is in Québécois repertoire, where it was recorded in 1929 by Sotère Mongrain (fiddle) and Ida Mongrain (piano) under the title "Reel de St-Tite." The tune was also in Maritime fiddler Don Messer's "Down-East" repertoire, as Rambler's Hornpipe. The Old French title supposedly camed from a remark by an old Vermont fiddler who was asked its title and responded that it was "just an old French tune."
