"One night I was at a party at Marion Bridge and I heard 77 year old Perce Peters playing the fiddle, accompanied by 15 year old Tracy Cares on piano. After hearing them play for a while a thought came to me: We have to preserve the music of Perce Peters and we have to introduce this fine young piano player to the public. So we called Ronnie GIllis and with limited facilities and late at night we were able to capture this much on tape. Not done in any fancy studio, so what you hear may not be perfect but well worth recording and preserving. So with the able assistance of Barney Peters and Tracy’s parents we put it all together. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did working with these fine people."
