GLENGARRY (4). AKA - "Reel Glengarry." AKA and see "Jacques Cartier," "Reel Jacques-Cartier." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The title probably refers to Glengarry County in eastern Ontario, with strong Scottish influences in the local fiddle tradition[1]. Victor released the recording at the same time as "Reel Jacques-Cartier." Jean Duval finds the first two measures of "Souvenir Clog" (Ryan's Mammoth Collection, 1883) to be same as the first two measures in Allard's piece, but there the similarity ends between the two[2].
