Lime Hill

Strathspey composed by Dan R. McDonald of Cape Breton

Posted by .

Hi Slainte, your friend is good on the fiddle, but the piano accompaniment is totally wierd in that recording, it sounds like an attempt to imitate the Cape Breton piano style but not quite succeding…

You have good ears, McG. The piano player doesn’t specialise in C.B. music.

I don’t know how good my ears are really… but I happen to listen to a lot of CB music :)

John Morris on the fiddle. Howie MacDonald is on piano, and Jimmy on the drums. You can also hear the audience clapping- this is in Scotland so they fortunately do it with rhythm…

Hallo

Have downloaded the original Rankin video. I also have my own recording of the Molly Rankin Reel (Wayne Robertson Trio, Guardbridge 1993), but can someone please tell me:

What are the other tunes on this fantastic video with Rankin himself?
