La Roulante

A Jean Blanchard tune, this one also goes by the name, “The LNB Polka.” Blanchard, who I’ve written about briefly, is one of those credited with reviving rural French folk music in the early ’70s. I recorded this video as part of Melodeon.net‘s Tune of the Month festivities. Even though it’s called “The LNB Polka,” there are some who say it is not, in fact, a polka, but a scottish. Having not heard Blanchard’s version I played it the way it made sense to me. Enjoy.

  2. Hi Gary from Normandy, France. La Roulante is recorded by Jean Blanchard on audio tape ARN 433822, that you can see on my website. I saw you put in your links : Préhistoire du folk.
    Maybe can I make you cd copy …?
