Reel Du Cultivateur
I transcribed this tune from the playing of Philippe Bruneau on the 1974 LP titled Danses Pour Veillées Canadiennes (Philo label, FI-2006). It is the seventh tune in a nine tune medley which fills the entire A side of the LP.
This is a traditional Québecois fiddle tune first recorded in 1929 by Joseph Allard. Bruneau recorded it in C on a three row accordion but you are more likely to find it in D in a session. Bruneau uses a slight accent on the "c’s" in the first, second, fifth and sixth measures of the B section to give a nice syncopated feel to that section.
