Two comments

A collection of field recordings made in 1991/1992 by Ken Perlman and issued along with a book of tunes from Prince Edward Island. A great collection including some older musicians. Unfortunately too many of the tracks have slightly inappropriate accompaniment, as Ken Perlman seemed to insist on playing 5-string banjo on many tracks (albeit fairly quietly)
