A nice, simple tune. I can see it creeping into some of the more permissive ‘Irish’ sessions.
This tune is composed by Edward Arsenault. A fiddle player from the Evangeline area of Prince Edward Island. Edward has composed many great tunes and this is one of his first.
Re: La Reel Des Acadiens
Thanks for this one, Gian Marco…from one saxophonist to another!
This is absolute cake on the C#/D box…feels great to play, and has a great stride to it that makes those dancers’ feet move. I’m really curious about more of Arsenault’s work now…
And thank you, Anastasia, for the attribution to Arsenault! Makes me want to dive into Acadian music more, especially after listening to Joe Cormier for all these years.
