Charming jig by André Brunet

A great jig that I found on the disc "B & B" by André Brunet and Éric Beaudry. The liner notes are as follows:

"Ces deux gigues ont été composées par André lorsqu’il demeurait dans le 5e rang à Saint-Ambroise-de-Kildare. La maison fut construite en 1918 par M. Joseph Boucher que eut une famille nombreuse comptant quelques violoneux."

My hamfisted translation:
These two jigs were composed by André while living on 5th Concession in Saint-Ambroise-de-Kildare. The house was built in 1918 by Mr. Joseph Boucher who had a large family counting among their number several fiddlers.

This jig is a nice lilting piece that doesn’t blaze along too quickly, perhaps a bar every second.

First Jig of the Set

Does anyone know the name of the first jig of the St. Ambroise set? I have a recording of it from a friend but he doesn’t know either.

Other jig in this set…

On the B & B disc, track 3, the first tune is called 6/8 de 5e (six-huit de cinquieme) or "jig of the fifth".

Liner notes for this track

In the original french:
6/8 de 5e

My best attempt at translation:
Jig of the 5th

ANDRÉ BRUNET - These two dances were composed by André while living on 5th Line in St-Ambroise-de-Kildare, Québec. The house was built in 1918 by Mr. Joseph Boucher who had a sizable family containing several fiddlers.
