Frenchie's Reel is a common tune, in Bb, found is many books and also many
scribbled manuscripts. I don't know if it's origin is the Quebecois genre,
it sounds much like other Quebecois tunes. The A part sounds like a
variation of Mountain Ranger Hornpipe aka Rosebud Reel, and these tunes are
also in Bb. (Mountain Ranger and Rosebud are both in Cole's.)
You can find the written notes in Ted Sannella's book Swing the Next. I am
not sure if it is appropriate for SCD because of the shuffling syncopation in
the B part but it sure is great for contra dances.
