Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Buddy MacMaster (fiddle); Mary Elizabeth MacMaster MacInnis (piano).
  • Includes liner notes by Burt Feintuch.
  • This is part of Rounder Records "North American Tradition" series.
  • Cape Breton fiddler Buddy MacMaster is not as famous in the lower half of North America as his hotshot niece Natalie, but for those who prefer the undiluted, hardcore traditional music of Cape Breton, this recording will feel more like the real thing than Natalie MacMaster's more modern excursions. Buddy MacMaster's style is cleaner and perhaps more "pretty" than that of some of his contemporaries, but it still packs plenty of vinegar, and his rhythmic energy is tremendous. When he digs into a strathspey like "The Lass O'Corrie Mill" or "The Highlands of Banffshire," or even the more stately "Farewell to the Glen," the effect is electric. Interestingly, he tends to play hornpipes with a straight rhythm rather than the lilting implied triplets that typify the English or Irish approach; his renditions of "Upper Denton Hornpipe" and "Catching Rabbits" are especially fine. And his settings of the "high bass reels" "Bridge of Bamore" and "Marquis of Tullybardine" (named for the unusual tuning in which they are played) are no less exciting. Throughout the album he is accompanied, in traditional Cape Breton style, by his daughter Mary Elizabeth MacMaster MacInnis on the piano. She plays expertly but in a tastefully supportive mode; nothing she plays will distract you from the fiddler, but when you do stop and take note of what she's doing, it's always inventive and lovely. Very highly recommended overall. ~ Rick Anderson
