QUADRILLE FRANCO-AMÉRICAIN FIG. 3. French-Canadian, Jig (6/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The third figure of six in a quadrille set. The original quadrille is in six parts, and was recorded in Toronto in 1928 by J. O. La Madeleine (1880-1973) and son Albert LaMadeleine (1905-1986). Scottish composer and bandleader Angus Fitchet's jig "Elizabeth Adair," notes researcher Jean Duval, is quite similar to La Madeleine's third figure of the his "Franco-American Quadrille," although the resemblance is considered by Duval to be happenstance rather than derivation.
