LABRADOR. French-Canadian, Reel. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The melody is similar to "Traveller (1) (The)."

Additional notes
Source for notated version : - transplanted French-Canadian fiddler Omer Marcoux (Concord, N.H.) who learned the tune as a young adolescent when a man from Labrador (hence the name) stayed with the family for a few weeks and played at night with them [Miskoe & Paul].
