GIGUE ADÉLARD. French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BCC. Researcher Jean Duval finds that the fiddler was listed as "A. Girard" on the Compo-Starr recording notes from 1929, and he believes that the fiddler was from the Trois-Rivières area of Quebec, as one of the tunes he recorded for Starr was called "St-Léon", the name of a nearby a village.
The first strain of "Gigue Adélard" is something of a "floater" and shows up "Ti-Blanc Richard Tune, as the second strain of "Chantiers (Les)" and others.
