REEL DE VAUDREUIL. AKA and see "Reel de Montréal (1)," "Reel de Sherbrooke (2)." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major ('A' part) & D Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A quadrille-like reel (i.e. it changes keys in between each part) recorded by Montreal fiddler J.O. LaMedeliene as "Reel de Vaudreuil" in 1937, accompanied by his son Marcel on guitar. The British hornpipe "Navvy/Navvie on the Line", attributed to early 19th century Tyneside fiddler James Hill, is cognate in the first strain.
J.O. LaMadeleine (1880-1973)
Vaudreuil, located at the confluence of the Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers, is a southwestern suburb of Montreal, named for Philippe de Vaudreuil, who was governor of the city at the beginning of the 18th century. In 1994 the town of Vaudreuil merged with another locality to form Vaudreuil-Dorion.
