Introduction to Québecois Fiddle Style with “Le Reel du Gaucher”


Friday

2:00-3:00PM

Location: Jean Carignan Room 2

Instructor: Éric Favreau (fiddle)

Style: Canadian Québecois (French Canadian)

From the fiddler Henri Landry of Pontbriand, this is a nice reel with short phrases, interesting to play in different ways. Landry learned the tune - translated as "Left-Hander's Reel" - from a kindly, poor, eccentric old fiddler, Thomas "Quêteux" Pomerleau (according to Dance ce Soir, by Laurie Hart and Greg Sandell).  Éric's here all weekend to teach tunes in the French Canadian style of beauty, feeling, rhythm, and excitement.
