Brenda Stubbert - Music All Around

Brenda Stubbert - Fiddle

Stephanie Wills piano and fiddle
Paul MacDonald -guitar
Stewart MacNeil - accordion and flute
Ed Woodsworth - acoustic bass (one track)

Brenda Stubbert is one of the most popular dance players in Cape Breton. Her fifth album, Music All Around is the work of a mature artist at the peak of her powers. Brenda's compositions fit seamlessly with older melodies. Her well crafted medleys leave listeners looking for more.

Recorded in the front room of a country home, a room full of attentive friends, the music was captured with natural acoustics and no effects. The result is magical, transporting listeners to the inner circle of a Cape Breton music session.
