Fiddle and Feet

Québécois music is something I am only recently acquainted with, but the more I listen to, the more amazed I am by the fiddlers. If the videoes on YouTube are any indication, it seems to be quite normal for them to do double duty as foot-percussionists while carrying on on the fiddle--you can't say their reels aren't driven! Here is an example with André Brunet on the fiddle and feet and Martine Billette on the keyboard. The tune is listed as "La Belle Catherine."
