"Brenda Stubbert is one of the most popular dance players in Cape Breton. Her fifth album, Music All Around is the work of a mature artist at the peak of her powers. Brenda’s compositions fit seamlessly with older melodies. Her well crafted medleys leave listeners looking for more.
Recorded in the front room of a country home, a room full of attentive friends, the music was captured with natural acoustics and no effects. The result is magical, transporting listeners to the inner circle of a Cape Breton music session."
