Learn "The Abegweit Reel,” a Great 3-Part Tune from Prince Edward Island



Location: R7

Instructor: Frank Ferrel (fiddle)

Style: Canadian Prince Edward Island

Historically, fiddling has always been an important part of life in P.E.I., one of Canada's Maritime Provinces. Tunes with infectious rhythm transport the listeners and dancers above the cares of everyday life. The word "Abegweit" is derived from the Mi'kmaq word for Prince Edward Island, "Epekwit'k," meaning "cradled on the waves." You knew that, right?
