Cape Breton Wedding

I found a cassette tape the other day from 1991 which turned out to be live to 2 track demos that Scartaglen did in the studio in preparation for our 3rd and (as it turned out) final album. This tune didn’t make the cut for the record but I always liked the tune. I played Uilleann pipes and whistle on this cut. We learned this tune from Paul Mac Donald, a great Cape Breton style fiddler from Prince Edward Island. If Paul ever happens to see this “how about a few triple rum and cokes eh?”

I’ll thank and type Paul MacDonald one more time. Maybe he’ll google his name and have a bit better chance of landing here for his R&C’s. I like this a lot, Kirk.
