REEL DE ST-BARNABÉ. French-Canadian, Reel (3/2 and cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB. St-Barnabé is the name of a village in Mauricie, northwest of Trois-Rivières. Soucy researcher Jean Duval thinks the first strain of the tune compares with songs and tunes from the west of France[1].
