about

: Devon spent a memorable week at the Festival of American Fiddle Tunes translating for the great Acadian fiddler Bertrand Déraspe of the Magdalen Islands. Late one night, Bertrand shared this complex tune with Devon. There’s no name, so we took to calling it “Reel à Glendon” after the nickname that Bertrand gave Devon all week! Bertrand remembers his grandfather, Célestin, whistling this tune to him from his rocking chair next to a roaring woodstove on the Magdalen Islands.
