If you start a Party with this tune,

@maudmaud -

Do you know where to find sheet music for this tune? 

 

@Thomas B. -

I tried to do a quick search for you. 

"Le Jour De L'an" (New Year's Day), was written by Madame Édouard Bolduc (Mary Travers) - originally from Newport, Québéc, she played accordion, fiddle & more, but became famous as a singer/song-writer in the 1930's - after she moved to Springfield, Massachusetts.  She made friends with folks who played in "Conrad Gauthier's troupe, the Veillées du bon vieux temps (meaning 'an evening with the good old days') and was 'discovered' when she was asked to fill in for an absent folk violinist."

I can't find the sheet music, but I put out some requests for help. 

"The queen of Canadian folksingers"

The story of Mary Travers Bolduc is a rags-to-riches tale of a Quebec housewife who rose from impoverished obscurity to become a major 1930s recording phenomenon. This ordinary, traditional woman became a most extraordinary musical spokesperson for her time and her people, earning the title, "Queen of Canadian folksingers". A postage stamp was issued on the 100th anniversary of her birth (1994) as part of the Great Canadians series.

More info here:

I have to rely on Google Translate for this info is ALL in French:

@ELCBK : i played the arrangement of this site Mildor Violin, in the "Christmas Classics" https://mildorviolon.com/p/boutique (you have access to the scores, 2 violins, cello, piano, and piano accompaniment). Paper ou digital.

And good research.

@wtw @katie m @thomas b : thank you, i'm glad you like this tune😄

@maudmaud -

Thank you! 

That would be a very helpful link - do you know of any way we could view it (and subscribe) in English?

I don't think there is a problem with mentioning it! 

Seems like a helpful site.

I really admire everyone who understands more than one language! 

...I only know a few words and phrases and 'Google Translate' is limited. 😒
