Product Description & Reviews

With a culture deeply influenced by 19th century Scottish emigration, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, is widely celebrated for its fiddle music. Profoundly rooted in old Scottish tradition, the music is increasingly moving to center stage in the contemporary Celtic revival, as seen in the popularity of Cape Breton fiddlers Natalie MacMaster and Ashley MacIsaac. This CD features some of the best known and most admired Cape Breton fiddlers, with piano and guitar accompaniment in the island's distinct style. The sound of the island is alive in these exciting performances, recorded live at dances and concerts in Cape Breton during the summer of 2000. This is the real thing-- master fiddlers playing in the heart of the tradition, along the Ceilidh Trail. In the 19th century, immigrants from Scotland settled on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, which, because of its geographical isolation, allowed the musical traditions of those first settlers to pass to future generations essentially free of outside influences. In the 1970s, people began to realize that many tunes, instrumental techniques, and dance steps that are extinct in Scotland were alive and thriving in Cape Breton. The Heart of Cape Breton, recorded in 2000, gathers some of the finest traditional fiddlers on Cape Breton, including Jerry Holland, Brenda Stubbert, Jackie Dunn MacIsaac, Buddy MacMaster, Wendy MacIsaac, and Kinnon Beaton. All of the tracks were recorded live at dances and concerts, and although you can occasionally hear the shuffle of dancing feet in the background, the sound only acts as a reminder that the masterful fiddling on the jigs, reels, strathspeys, and flings is designed to get you out of your chair and onto the dance floor. --Michael Simmons
