Marcel Meilleur (1930-2007) was a Metis fiddler from Fisher Branch, Manitoba, who partnered with fiddler Andy DeJarlis for some 15 years, until DeJarlis's death in 1975. Following that Meilleur had a successful career on his own touring, broadcasting on the radio, and even had a television variety show for four years on the CBC French network.
