REEL DU PLOMBIER (Plumber's Reel). AKA - "2ème partie du Set carré à Pitou Boudreault," "Reel de la bombarde. French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB' (LaMadeleine). "Reel du plombier" was recorded by Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard (1873-1947) in Montreal in October, 1928 (released by Victor Records in January of 1929). Another Montreal fiddler, J.O. LaMadeleine, recorded his version a few months later, for Starr Records, released in March, 1929. Both are fairly faithful versions of "Paddy on the Turnpike (1)," a popular reel by that name among English-speaking fiddlers in Britain, Ireland and North America, although it has also gathered several alternate titles.

See also Isidore Soucy's very distanced version as "Gigue irlandaises (2)" (1925), A.J. Boulay's "Reel de la bombarde," and Louis "Pitou" Boudreault's "2ème partie du Set carré à Pitou Boudreault."
