One of the many great A and R Brunet compositions

Les Freres Brunet (Andre and Rejean) are outstanding composers. We heard Andre play this with his conjoint (sp?) Martine Billette a couple of years ago at an AQLF festival. To my limited understanding of the language, she had a great deal to do with the inspiration for this composition.

Re: Ciel D’automne

Lovely tune, but a wee bit fast? In my book it’s a slow air, and pretty sure that Andre plays it slower than that.

Re: Ciel D’automne

it is indeed a lovely melody, doesn’t sound to me any faster than La Bottine Souriante original. I cant figure out what the guy in the background is doing on guitar, looks like he’s playing dobro style but I’m not hearing any slide notes?

Re: Ciel D’automne

I found this poignant story behind the inspiration for this song:

‘CIEL D’AUTOMNE (Autumn Sky). French-Canadian, Air. A modern composition by fiddler Andre Brunet after the death of his father, when he felt his father’s spirit looking down on his young son from the autumn sky’.

Re: Ciel D’automne

This is such an inspiring tune, my dad also passed away in early October, quite some many years ago. The way the light looks and feels at this time of year in New England always reminds me of him and what a wonderful man he was.
