ANDRE ALAIN EN DO. French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). A Major: C Major (Demers). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB: AA'BB' (Demers). This untitled reel is from the repertoire of influential fiddler (and hunter) André Alain (1931-2000) from St-Basile-de-Portneuf. Guy Bouchard recalled for a 1998 article in Fiddler Magazine:

I cant remember exactly when I first met him but he was part of our lives for years. He had a little apartment in old Québec City not far from André Marchand, and we would spend our days around there playing music in the street or around a beer in his little kitchen. André Marchand, Danielle Martineau (who was directing a folk center at that time) and I realized that it was a must to record him. André Alain was quite a "wild" fiddler and we figured that it would be impossible to record him in a studio. At that time, he had spent a lot of time playing with Pierre Laporte. So we went to Alain's house (he had moved back to his native St-Basile), invited Pierre and brought all the recording equipment. We recorded the whole thing in two days.
