Ancien post:

Rebonjour.

La première pièce est une composition du violoneux Montréalais Richard Forest et elle est très connue à Montréal.  C'est lui qui m'a donné son poste de professeur à l'école où j'enseigne présentement.  Andy Dejarlis est un des violoneux Manitobain les mieux connus et il a composé plusieurs excellents morceaux dont celui là.  J'ai entendu des gens jouer la pièce avec un Fa bécard OU un Fa dièse dans la deuxième partie... à vous de décider.

Hello.

The first tune was composed by the very well known Richard Forest.  Richard is the one who gave me his teaching task at the school where I now teach. 
Andy Dejarlis was a very famous fiddler of the prairie region of Canada, he composed many excellent tunes like the one I wrote down in this post.  I've heard people play the F at the beginning of the B part of the tune either natural or sharp... I let you decide.  For my part, I played it natural.

Bonjour, Pascal,
I am enjoying learning these tunes very much.
Can you please tell us what tunes are commonly played together to make a set?
And, you are posting mainly jigs and reels. Are there waltzes and airs, etc, that are also commonly played?
Merci!
Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth.  thank you for taking the time to write again.To my knowledge, there are no pre-arranged sets in Quebecois music.  I guess there are some in Irish because people learn tunes a lot from recordings and reproduce the sets that where recorded on CD.  I know maybe two people who do that in Quebec but the very very vast majority of people just play a tune and when they are tired of it they just change to the next that comes to their mind.There are some airs that are commonly played.  They are all crooked so i will get to them in a short while.There are no real traditionnal waltzes.  I find that the only traditionnal musicians who play waltzes are the ones that play for dancers and the weird ones...  There are many waltzes and they are wonderfull but I don't know of a 'general' repertoire of waltzes (maybe the acordion players have one but fiddlers don't).  There is one that's a recent composition by storyteller Michel Faubert that's well known outside of Quebec.  It's called "la valse des jouets" or "waltz of the toys" and it should be one of the next posts.  Thank you for reminding me we also play waltzes.Pascal
