Wonderful tune - a French scottish

Actually this is not a barndance but a French scottish by Frederic Paris. I got to know the tune yesterday at a session in northern Germany and I just got addicted to it. At the session they played it just like this guy:

I came across an ABC somewhere in another key that deviated slightly from this wonderful version, so I altered it - now it matches the music.

this is already on site, or used to be…

Barndances / Schottisches - all in the family…

No luck on an initial search, but I know this had been on site previously. It may have been lost when someone left, or in another key? :-/

~ | G6 :| - |: D B2 c2 | ~

For any kind of basic schottische your count is off…

& another nice take on this from YouTube ~

Schottisch on g/c accordion
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHcVErx2MuA

"I mess up the tune quite a bit, but I like the clip nontheless, so here it is. A lovely schottisch, "le canal en octobre" by Fréderic Paris, melody played completely on the inner c row."

Le Canal en Octobre - another arrangement

We recently arranged this piece for brass band and in the course of so doing produced a distillation of it for 2 or 3 folk parts. I only have this in sheet music form, so cannot give you an ABC edition. How do I upload so others can play and enjoy?
