“Father Eugene’s Welcome to Cape North” ~ another Mike MacDougall march

God bless the man and his music, Down North (Cape Breton) has never fully recovered from his loss. He was a damned hard worker, fisherman and the main man for the dances in his time. Just to keep the connection, here are his other tunes on site:
