French-Canadian tune

First tune in the Blindman’s Set, Siobh

"Reel De L’aveugle" ~ French Canadian ~ A, G or a more reasonable D

This tune works well in A, but also in G, however, here is another take on it in D ~ the Joseph Ovila recording is a gem, priceless, so do right-click over the link and ‘save the target’ so you can add it to your collection for your listening pleasure, not a set of tunes, just the one on its own and played beautifully…

Joseph Ovila Madeleine ~

http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.com/

"LaMadeleine, J. (Joseph) O. (Ovila). Violoneux, b Valleyfield, Que, 1 May 1880, d Montreal 28 Jan 1973. He took up the violin at 10 - he played the instrument left-handed - and was an accomplished fiddler when he moved in 1919 to Montreal. There he participated in many folk music events and, in the late 1920s, operated a music store at 6674 rue Boyer. In 1927 he made his first records for Starr, completing 54 78s in the next 15 or more years. He also made two 78s for Columbia in 1928. He was accompanied on some recordings by his son Marcel, a guitarist, and performed on others with the singers Aurore Beaulé (his daughter) and Ovila Légaré."

Wrong octave~!
