Reel de Montebello

I don’t know anything about the origin of this tune, exept that I have a recording of it by a contra dance band from western Massachusets called The Flying Garbonzos.

Richard Forest tune

This tune was written by Quebec fiddler Richard Forest and has become fairly popular within the contradance scene.

I play a slightly different version that I learned from Rodney Miller:
