Québécois (Joseph Allard) Tune Id?
Wondering if anyone can remind me of the name of an incredibly catchy polka-type tune from Joseph Allard (full transcription below). I first heard and learned it when there was a playlist of all or nearly all of Allard’s recordings put out by the YouTube channel "cornhillmedia". Unfortunately, this channel with an extensive catalog of Canadian and American fiddle has since met its demise; I suspect they posted one too many copyrighted recordings or some such thing. I thus cannot check back for the name as I would normally. There no longer seems to be a single, readily-accessible collection of Allard’s recordings online or as an electronic album; the collection on YouTube is now comparatively sparse. I am in possession of Dr. Jean Duval’s excellent collection of transcriptions and commentary on all of Allard’s recorded tunes, available at https://leviolondejos.wiki/images/e/e6/La_musique_de_Joseph_Allard_par_Jean_Duval.pdf. However, as I am blind, I can’t exactly look through the book for the transcription, as they are all copied images. The commentary is very informative, though you do need to be able to read French.
Anyway, after all that, here’s the tune. I’ve transcribed it as a polka, though perhaps you could also transcribe it as a reel with many quarter notes. Note that the last measure of the B-part is missing a beat, so I transcribed the preceding measure as in 3/4:
|:g/a/g/e/ dB|BA A2|f>e ed/d/|dc/c/ cB|
g/a/g/e/ dB|BA A2|f/g/f/e/ d/c/B/A/|1Gg g2:|2Gg gB|
|:dg gf/g/|a>a aB|ca ag/a/|b>b bB|
dg gf/g/|a>a aB|1ca ab/a/|1g>g gB:|2[M:3/4] ca ab/a/ g2|
Thanks in advance,
