Theresa and Marie MacLellan — A Trip to Mabou Ridge

This is one of the greatest recordings of Cape Scottish music. Both players are fabulous musicians. The contents are a mix of old Scottish tunes and tunes originating in Cape Breton. The musical style is old Cape Breton, more "fiddley" than "violiney." The piano accompaniment is superb, The whole recording is a synergism of the music of two great musicians, sisters who have played together for decades. I recommend it highly.
