CLOG DE PERIBONKA. French-Canadian, Waltz-clog (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BCC'. The tune is from the repertoire of Montreal accordion player Tommy Duchesne  (1909-1986), who recored the tune in 1936 for Starr Records. He was backed on the recording by guitar player Tony Ouellette. Péribonka is a the name of a town and a river in the province of Québec, well north of Québec City. The town is situated at the mouth of the Peribonka River where it forms a bay on the north shore of Lac Saint-Jean. According to Wikipedia, the name 'Peribonka' comes from the Innu word periwanga (or possibly from pelipaukau), meaning "river digging in/removing the sand." See also Joseph Allard's "Reel de Péribonka"), unrelated to DSuchesne's melody.
