I learned this simple but infectious reel from the playing of Kerry Elkin and then later from Lisa Ornstein. I’ve never heard an Irish or Scottish version of it. Is it a truly indigenous Quebec tune?
Lisa Ornstein plays the last measure of each part as |BdBG G2 :| which has a certain all-tonic charm when played up to speed.
He’s an especially prolific New Brunswick composer. He also wrote Bowing the Strings and Woodchopper’s.
There may be some confusion here. Ned Landry did indeed compose a tune named Celina (named for his first wife). See it played by Ivan Hicks, who was a friend of Landry’s:
The tune given here, also called Gigue à Célina, is from the playing of Louis “Pitou” Boudreault (Lisa Ornstein wrote a Master’s thesis on him and his music). Boudreault often named tunes after his relatives; I believe Célina was an aunt.
