The Lion

C: Paul S. Cranford

from the playing of Laoise Kelly from her album "Just Harp"

Laoise writes:

"Paul Cranford is well known for his compositions in the Cape Breton style. I had many mad nights of music with Paul and other Cape Bretoners while staying there with the Bumblebees. Paul named this tune after his fiddle "The Lion" because of it’s powerful tone. (Or perhaps it should be called "The Lion’s Foot", in honour of my "stomping" foot which sometimes gets carried away keeping time!)"
