Well, I asked Howard Markham, a musician, and he says it's played for contra
dances. He thinks it's a French Canadian tune. Howard says there are web
sites with large collections of dance tunes, some where you can download ABC
notation, some with regular notation, and some where you can play the tunes.
He can probably track down the URLs if you are seeking specific information
about this tune.

Does anyone know of a dance tune called "Frenchie's Reel" - I have no idea
if that is the correct spelling, but a friend of a friend has just asked if
I have any information, to which the answer is "No, but I'll ask!"
