Tune of the Day: Saint Anne's Reel

Traditional French-Canadian reel

There is quite a lot of confusion about the origins of this tune. It is played in sessions in Scotland, Ireland, New England, Canada, and other spots around the world, and it has been claimed as a Shetland tune, an Irish reel, a French-Canadian and American old-time. The most common opinion is that it is French-Canadian in origin, although now it is firmly adopted in Ireland.
