REEL DES ÉBOULEMENTS. AKA and see "Avalanche Reel," "Belle Catherinette (1) (La)," "Dad's Reel." French-Canadian, Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. Eboulements is a French word meaning a ‘scree', ‘rock fall’ or 'avalanche', however, the name also refers to a section of Quebec Province in the Charlevoix region of the St. Lawrence river, east of Quebec City and near the town of Baie St-Paul. The melody was recorded under the 'Éboulements' title by fiddler Jos Bouchard (1905-1979) in 1938, however, it had earlier been recorded by Montreal fiddler J.O. LaMadeleine as "La Belle Des États (Set Américain 1Ére Partie)" {"Set American, First Part"}, Columbia 34127-F (78 RPM). Philippe Bruneau and Graham Townsend both recorded the tune in the 1970's as "Belle Catherinette (1) (La)."
