REEL DE ST-LEON. French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Researcher Jean Duval finds that the fiddler was listed as "A. Girard" on the Compo-Starr recording notes from 1929, and he believes that the fiddler was from the Trois-Rivières area of Quebec, as one of the tunes he recorded for Starr was called "St-Léon", the name of a nearby a village.
