Ramasse tes bourrures

I got this from the playing of Jean Carignan - first tune on this video:


It’s a really stirring rendition, played with his characteristic gusto, and once I’ve heard it it tends to get stuck in my head; the tune itself has a great shape about it, though for some reason I always had it in my head that the A section is ‘crooked’, until I wrote it down…
I’ve looked for info on the record online but, as often seems the case with those of Carignan, didn’t get much enlightenment, so I’ve had to assume the tune title is the first given on the track listing (spelt slightly differently to the YouTube video everywhere else online).

I think this is Reel du Carnival, composed by Joseph Allard

Ah, wonderful, thanks David! I find it can be really hard to find out much about some of these tunes.

I’ve just realised this morning that for this whole time I’ve had another recording of Carignan playing the tune, with it titled ‘Reel du Carnaval’! It’s on disc three of the ‘Archives’ set.
