Masters of French Canadian Dances

Joseph Allard, called "Prince of the Fiddlers," was born near Montréal in 1873 and learned the rudiments of his art from his father, also a brilliant fiddler. Allard's "light and supple bowing, coupled with matchless fingering" won him honors and fame, and he recorded the spirited sides presented here between 1928 and 1933.
