Ten comments

Two fine musicians, this is a composition by Elmer Briand for Johnny Wilmot, also to be found in his collection:

"Fiddle Tunes: A Collection of Elmer Briand’s Musical Compositions"
Elmer C. Briand, Cape Breton Island

"The Cape Breton Fiddle of Elmer Briand"
Celtic Records: SCX-56, 1962
Elmer Briand - fiddle
Donald MacKinnon - guitar
Kathleen Beaton - piano

While his hand-notated collection has the title in the singular, this recording has it plural, as "Johnny Wilmot’s Fiddles"…

"Elmer Briand & His Cape Breton Fiddle"
Celtic Records: SCX-58
Elmer Briand - fiddle
Joseph G. Poirier - guitar
Kathleen Beaton - piano

Fiddle workshop in Rochester, MA

we learned Johnny Wilmot’s Fiddle with Hanneke Cassel, very nice tune! 12/9/06

Jerry Holland Setting

The setting I have provided is closer to that of Jerry Holland. This reel is tons of fun to play.
