QUADRILLE ACADIEN. AKA and see "Gigue Indienne," "Reel du carnaval." French-Canadian, Reel. The tune is from the playing of Quebec fiddler Jospeh Allard (1873-1947), recorded in Montréal in 1928 as "Quadrille acadien" (Victor 263543), and again in 1937 under the title "Reel du carnaval" (Bluebird B-1123). It was also issued on the Bluebird label under Allard's pseudonym, Maxime Toupin.

Joseph Allard
Isidore Soucy recorded his version of the tune as "Gigue Indienne", also in late 1928 (Starr 1557-A). The third strain of the reel was also employed by Soucy on another tune (Starr 15363b), and (on a different tune) by fiddler Willie Ringuette (Starr 15347a).
