REEL DE LA SAUTERELLE. AKA - "Reel des overalls." French-Canadian, Reel (2/4 or cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard (1873-1947) originally recorded the tune at the end of 1932 (released in January, 1933) under the title "Reel des overalls." It was re-released by Victor on their Bluebird label in 1937 as "Reel de la sauterelle." The first strain is very similar to the children's counting song "This Old Man."
