Re: Reel Traditionelle

This tune appears on the 2009 album from the Quebec/California band Les Têtes de Violon ‎called "Les deux rives / Two shores" under the name Johnny in the Green. The liner notes say that band member Laura Sadowsky learned it from Jerry Holland. On Jerry’s official website there is a link to a clip of him playing the tune when he was 7 years old: http://www.jerryholland.com/discography.htm. It seems that the tune has entered the French-Canadian repertoire. I’d be interested to know where Jerry got it as I’ve found no earlier reference to it.
