X:1 T:Eva's Tune T:Eva Drody's Tune N:Eva Drody, via the playing of fiddler Glenn Patterson. Laura Risk learned N:the tune in the key of 'G' from Ernest Drody in 2010, according to Glenn. N:Douglastown fiddler Erskine Morris played the tune in 'D', in ADae tuning. N:Eva Drody would always step-dance to the tune, played by members of the Drody N:family, and the original name (now lost) became supplanted by "Eva's Tune".

EVA'S TUNE. AKA - "Eva Drody's Tune." Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major (Ernest Drody): D Major (Erskine Morris). Standard or ADae tuning (fiddle). ABB'. A tune played by the Drody and DeVogue family and others in the Douglastown, Gaspé, area, with versions in 'G' and 'D' (in ADae tuning). Blogger Glenn Patterson explains that the tune was learned by fiddler Laura Risk from Ernest Drody, and that it at one time had a title. However, it was young Eva Drody's favorite tune to step-dance to, and the original title was supplanted by the family's fiddlers who came to call it "Eva's Tune."
