from Brenda Stubbert, Endless Memories


This popular tune had been published in many pipe books some of which are listed below. Almost all of the last generation of Cape Breton fiddlers played it in settings subtlely different from the pipe sources. The sound clip comes from Brenda Stubbert's Endless Memories CD. Cameron Chisholm was Brenda's source. He also plays a related reel - Willie Roy's Loomhouse

The composite arrangement given above is from The Cape Breton Highland Collection. Some of the players who influenced my setting include Brenda Stubbert as well as Arthur Muise, Cameron & Margaret Chisholm, Mary Hughie MacDonald, Alex Francis MacKay, Natalie & Buddy MacMaster. It has also been recorded by Ashley MacIsaac on his CD Fine Thank You Very Much.
