Intro to Cape Breton Fiddle with "Jenny Bowser":


Thursday

6:30-7:30PM

Instructor: BEATON[F]

Style: Cape Breton Scottish

Here's a driving, ornamented, fiddle style that draws on Scottish and Irish traditions and more. Learn "Jenny Bowser" from Andrea Beaton, of a musical family from Mabou, Cape Breton Island. This tune was originally written by J. Scott Skinner, but gained wide currency in Cape Breton after it was recorded by the Five MacDonald Fiddlers and popularized by fiddler Winston Fitzgerald.
