GIGUE DES ARTISANS (The Craftsman's Jig). AKA and see: "Reel des travailleurs," "Traveller's Reel," "Walker Street." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. "Gigue des artisans" is Isidore Soucy's slightly 'crooked' interpretation of the venerable Walker Street <div class="mw-ext-score" data-midi="/w/images/lilypond/4/p/4p0qns70soafh1r5wvvtr6y52xjqwxh/4p0qns70.midi"><img src="/w/images/lilypond/4/p/4p0qns70soafh1r5wvvtr6y52xjqwxh/4p0qns70.png" width="657" height="54" alt=" X:1 M:C| L:1/8 K:G G2 BG dGBG|ABcd cBAG|Bdgd egdB|cBAG FADF| "/></div> "Laborer's Reel (1)" and "Traveller's Reel." The title usually has to do with itinerant laborers, however, Soucy elevates them to the status of craftsmen in his title, perhaps associating 'travelers' with tinkers.
