RÊVE DU QUÊTEUX (TREMBLAY), LE (Beggar Tremblay’s Dream). French-Canadian, Reel. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB. A ‘crooked’ or irregularly metered tune. The source, William Tremblay, was known as the ‘queteux Tremblay’, and was an peripatetic fiddler and character who would travel from village to village throughout Québec Province, trading his music for room and board. Hart & Sandell (2001) identify the tune as a version of Scottish fiddler-composer Joseph Lowe's “Archie Menzies.” The second strain is entirely in 6/4 time.
