Thanks for posting this. What a fabulous fiddler!! I love his version of this tune.
My personal favorite was a largely unknown fiddler, Jean-Louis Labbe who performed mostly in his home parish. There are very few recordings and this YouTube excerpt of a concert given in his parish church is a version of Reel du Point-au-Pic I find smooth and flawless. It took me hours to steal every lick I could from this version.
He was a shy, modest man who lived a quite good life and made excellent music for the people he loved.
