The Portland Collection Vol 2 attributes this setting to Theodore Duguay, although it originates from a traditional hormpipe. Apparently a popular tune in contradance circles.

"~ originates from a traditional hormpipe." ~ ??? :-/
I suspect they meant ‘hornpipe’, eh?
Hmm. My typo seems permanently recorded. :-(

recorded by La Bottine Souriante on the album Cordial. Tune # 4 " Le Set à Ubert" first tune from 0:00 to 1:50.
I think perhaps Heiko only heard the name and spelled it accordingly. Raynald Ouellet is the proper spelling of that accordeoniste’s name, and he wouldn’t be the composer of the tune, only an interpreter. I would still vote for Theodore Duguay, accordeoniste, as composer. http://www.mnemo.qc.ca/html2/99%2827%29a.html and http://tunearch.org/wiki/Annotation:Cal%C3%A9donia_%28Le%29
Le Set De Americain, X:4
The ceili band I play with plays this version. I the drop down an octave for opening of the B part.
