Reel Des Skieurs

Quebec reel, apparently from the repertoire of Joseph Allard (1873-1974), who recorded it under two different names nearly two decades apart (Quadrille Indien & Reel Des Skieurs). It is also known as "Reel Indien".

There’s another Quebec reel which has the title "Reel Indien", and the tune has some commonalities to this one, but, are not the same.
