REEL ÉCOSSAIS [1]. AKA - "Scottish Dance." French-Canadian, Strathspey (cut time). A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB'CBB'. Allard researcher Jean Duval finds Allard's "Reel ecossais" to be a version of "Miss Drummond of Perth (1)," a popular 18th century strathspey on the Scottish idiom. He believes it has been played by Quebec musicians for some time, as there are several recorded versions in the early recording archives. See also Isidore Soucy's "Trois corbeaux (Les)" for another, 'crooked', version of the same root tune, although quite different from the one played by Allard.
