Cape Breton Fiddle Tradition

Many people who know me understand that I have a great love for fiddle music, especially in the Celtic tradition. I also spent my honeymoon in Nova Scotia and have always wanted to go back and explore Cape Breton Island. I have recently discovered a fiddle tradition that has made that desire to return even stronger. I hope this performance by Natalie MacMaster in a TED talk helps you to understand why.

Hey MRC--She's coming to George Mason University May 9th. What a cutie...also, check out the band Leahy if you haven't heard them. IIRC, Natalie is married to Donal Leahy, a pretty wicked fiddler in his own right...
