Angus Chisholm 78s

 

Angus Chisholm (1907-1979) is thought by many to be the greatest Cape Breton fiddler of all time. When he was a young man he made a number of 78s which later, in the 70s, were reissued on the Shanachie label.

Recently these tracks have all been posted as free downloads on a site called INTERNET ARCHIVE (www.archive.org) Note that they mispelled Chsholm - so use this link. It will take you to the proper page for free downloads.

Better resolution is available from Paul MacDonald, however his site is currently down.
