CLOG CANADIENNE. French-Canadian, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. This dance tune was recorded by Isidore Soucy in 1930 for Star Records. The first strain is shared with "St. Lawrence Jig," familiar to musicians in New England and Ontario. Researcher Jean Duval also finds the first strain of the tune employed by fiddlers J.O. LaMadeleine ("Quadrille des seigneurs 4ème partie") and by Jospeh Allard ("Set de Vaudreuil 1ère partie") for recordings in the 78 RPM era . However, in each case the second strains are completely different from one-another [1].
