I was at a session at the Maltings in York last night and they played this great reel. I found the abc in JC’s tunefinder. Some info on the tune came from Fiddler’s Companion

REEL DES ACCORDEONISTES. French-Canadian, Reel. D Major. Standard. AABBCC (AABC for contra dances). Composed by Marcel Messervier, an accordion player and maker from Montmagny, Québec, for the 1981 Mariposa Festival in Toronto. Source for notated version: Sara Hiebert (Swathmore, Pa.) Via Dan Compton [Songer]. Songer (Portland Collection), 1997, pg. 18. Musicor MP 2035, La Bottine Souriante - “Tout comme au jour de l’an” (appears as a break in the song “La Parente”).

also recorded by Lisa Ornstein et Denis Pepin, on a cassette ‘Danseries de la Belle Provence’ about 25 years ago. I don’t know if it ever made it onto cd, but a brilliant collection of Quebecois fiddle and accordion music.
