AA'BB'CC'. "Reel du commis de barre" (Bartender's Reel) was recorded by Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard in 1931 for Victor Records. It was later recorded by Isidore Soucy as "Set d'en bas de Québec - 2ème partie." Jean Duval (2018) finds the first strain cognate with "London Hornpipe"/"Navvie on the Line."
