CANADIAN FIDDLE TUNES - press reviews

"This may be of particular interest and use to fiddle teachers or indeed any musician, wishing to expand their knowledge and understanding of this culture... a fine collection of tunes to add to anyone's repertoire." - BOX & FIDDLE

"All tunes are nicely played on the accompanying CD. The presentation, bowings and ornamentation are simple and uncluttered... an excellent collection and more than does justice to the richness of the Canadian fiddle tradition." - THE LIVING TRADITION
