Ian MacDougall - Before You Arrived

Fiddle: Ian MacDougall
Piano Mac Morin,

Temporarily out of stock


This is Inverness County fiddler Ian MacDougall's 2nd album. His style is earthy and rooted in tradition. Once again he has chosen pianist Mac Morin as his accompanist. As a team Ian and Mac are very popular on the Cape Breton square dance circuit. They play lively hard driving tunes, with a waltz for good measure.
