QUADRILLE FEVES AU LARD (Pork and Beans Quadrille). AKA and see "Pork and Beans," "Reel boule de neige," "Quadrille canadien -- 1ère partie." French-Canadian, Quadrille (cut or 2/4 time). G Major ('A' part) & D Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. "Quadrille fèves au lard" is from the repertoire of Québec fiddler Joseph Allard (fiddler) (1873-1947), who recorded it in 1932. Allard, who worked for much of his life as a fisherman, lived for a time in the United States, where he toured the northeast and was influenced by Irish and Scottish-style fiddlers. He returned to Canada in 1917 and settled near Montréal, later recording for the Bluebird label. The parts of the tune (which can be considered either a reel or polka) are sometimes reversed. Victor originally released the recording as "Quadrille fèves au lard" in 1932, but re-relased it in early 1933 on both its Victor and Bluebird labels under the "Boule de beige" title. The tune had been earlier recorded by Montreal fiddler Isidore Soucy in 1926 as "Quadrille canadien -- 1ère partie" In the late 1940's Don Messer and his band issued their recording of the same tune as "Pork and Beans, a translation of "Quadrille fèves au lard." See also the shared first strain of "Petite cocarde."
