The Lumber Jills

The Lumber Jills are a young group from eastern Canada and on this album they play a lot of Canadian folk tunes. This might be their first album? The group are playing at the National Celtic Festival in Portarlington, Australia. I looked at the artists page of the National Celtic Festival website and decided to search google play music for albums by this artist. I will do the same for other artists playing at the National Celtic Festival.

Re: The Lumber Jills

They’re Canadian, playing a Quebec tune in the video you posted. Listen to other arrangements of Big John McNeil, that’s generally how the tune sounds, and Quebec tunes for that matter.


Edit/added:

Patti Kusturok playing Big John McNeil, starting at ~16 s:

Apparently the tune is of Scottish origin, though, it’s now a big Quebec/Canadian tune, which varies from the original Scottish tune a bit.
