Cape Breton Wedding

kirklynch

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?”

Takes me back to the glorious weekend we spent with Gumbo last year. We heard all sorts of lovely, live Gaelic music.
This is very pretty!

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.
