The Heart Of Cape Breton: Fiddle Music Recorded Live along the Ceilidh Trail

This is a brilliant compilation of the live recordings by renowned Cape Breton fiddle masters: Brenda Stubbert’s, Jackie Dunn MacIsaac, Kinnon Beaton, Jerry Holland, Buddy MacMaster, and Wendy MacIsaac. All the performances were caught along the Ceilidh Trail and sound really lively and spontaneous.

I found this great album here in Japan just a few days ago and have been literally addicted to it: I simply cannot help playing it at least twice a day. It tempts me to start playing fiddle at the age of 24, though the most I can do is toying with a penny whistle.
