REEL DE LA PISTROLI, LE. Canadian, Reel. Canada, Newfoundland. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by Newfoundland fisherman and fiddler biography:Émile Benoît [1] (1913-1992). Pistroli was a variety show on Radio-Canada from 1978-1980 hosted by Donat Lacroix, a fisherman and a singer-songwriter from Caraquet, New Brunswick, and it is said Benoit composed the tune on the way to perform on the show.
