Re: Lake Bras d’Or: Scottish Violin Music from Cape Breton Island

This is the second album by the late Cape Breton fiddler Theresa Morrison (1919-2018), who sadly passed away this past January. It was released in 2004. Her first album, "Laments and Merry Melodies From Cape Breton Island" (1999), is already in the database. Like that album, it features old unrecorded tunes as well as new compositions by Morrison and tunes from her late husband Peter, a piper. Doug MacPhee accompanies her on piano.
