GIGUE DOUBLE [1]. AKA - "Double-gigue." AKA and see "Fisher's Hornpipe." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB' The tune was recorded by Montreal fiddlers Joseph Allard (1873–1947) and J.O. LaMadeleine in 1930 and 1938 respectively. Allard researcher Jean Duval informs that the name 'double gigue'/double jig for this tune stems from the mid-18th century conversion of hornpipes from the older triple hornpipe in 3/2 time to the double hornpipe in 4/4 time. He also says the 'double gigue' name for the piece was known to Metis musicians in western Canada[1].
