Learn a Great Cape Breton Strathspey as Played by the Beaton Family


Sunday

11:00AM-12:00PM

Location: Don Messer Room 4

Instructor: Andrea Beaton (fiddle)

Style: Canadian Cape Breton Scottish

Cape Breton in Nova Scotia is home to the world’s largest fiddle and bow. Even better, it’s home to a driving, ornamented, fiddle style that draws on Scottish and Irish traditions and more. Mabou (where the Beatons are from) is a great community of strathspey lovers. We’ll learn "Lucy Campbell," a great, old 4 parter and put the “dirt” (ornaments) from Mabou in it.
