Fiddler Maynard MacKenzie (1929-2015) was an original member of the CB Fiddlers Association. It was Maynard and his wife Julia who had the initial idea for The Cape Breton Fiddlers Collection, a compilation representing over 75 local composers including a number of tunes by Maynard himself.

When Maynard composed a new tune he would often call me so that I could help him write it out. Sometimes he'd visit me, bringing along his beloved Clay Carmichael fiddle. Other times I'd go to his place for tunes and tea.

Here are two those tunes:
The Pipefitter's Jig
Gordon MacLean's Piano

When Maynard passed away I was working on the Cape Breton Highland Collection so it's not surprising I composed him a pipe jig.
