Re: Franzke En Français

Does someone have ABC for the first tune in this set? (Le Reel de Violon du Monte en Vielle)

Re: Franzke En Français

No luck finding it Joshua. Read that it’s traditional.

There’s also a few YouTube videos of it you could also check out, specifically, one with André Brunet, David Boulanger and Jean-François Branchaud, and another with Katie Davis Henderson. It goes by a few names it seems, "Le Reel De Violon Du Monte En Vielle", "Le Reel De Violon Du Monde En Veille", "Le violon accordé comme une viole", and "Reel du Violon monté en Vièle".

Good looking out, Jeff!

Re: St. Andrew’s Flight

You’re welcome! Hopefully my rough transcriptions help.

Re: St. Andrew’s Flight

Found the name

St. Andrew’s Flight by Calum Pasqua

Re: St. Andrew’s Flight

Yay! I’ve been wanting to learn this for a long time.
If you wanna hear a REALLY rocking, riveting version of this reel, listen to “Lakehouse” by the Fitzgeralds. It starts out with a really cool, addictive jig and then goes into this reel. Great stuff! Check it out1
