Natalie MacMaster - A buddy jig

Natalie MacMaster - A buddy jig

Does anyone know the actual name of this tune? I absolutely love it and would like to find other recordings….

Re: Natalie MacMaster - A buddy jig

I’m assuming (dangerous, I know) that you’re referring to the Buddy Jig in D found on the "Road to the Isle" album that Natalie recorded as a teenager and not to the tune in G found in the tune section on this site. If so, you can find a bit of info here:

This link will take you to a great site with a wealth of info on CB albums. If we’re talking about the same tune, nobody else seems to have recorded it yet.

I hope this helps.

YEP!

THat’s the one! Thanks so much, and THANK YOU for that site….I have been struggling to find a good solid listing of cape breton fiddlers. I need to expand my listening outside of MacMasters and MacIsaacs!!

Re: Natalie MacMaster - A buddy jig

I love the Cape Breton sound - The Natalie MacMaster cd "a compilation" has been played over and over (that’s got the Buddy Jig on it). I recently got Cóisir - House Party by Máire O’Keeffe which is very Cape Breton influenced. I also like WinstonFitzgerald - I bought the book of his tunes from Cranford Publications. Also there’s Andrea Beaton http://www.andreabeaton.com/bio.htm and Lisa MacArthur http://www.cranfordpub.com/recordings/LisaMcA.htm%20
