REEL DE ST-PIERRE. French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. "Reel de St-Pierre" was recorded by Montreal fiddler Isidore Soucy in 1931 for Starr Records. Soucy researcher Jean Duval  notes that Soucy's second strain resembles parts of "Cardeuse (La)," and that harmonica player Louis Blanchette recorded a similar piece. Duval speculates the title may refer to a family name, Ville St-Pierre (a small neighborhood of the city of Montreal), or St. Peter himself.
