You Just Want to Get it Right? It's an Issue in Cape Breton Music, too

We found an interesting article on the subject of "correctness" in traditional music.  It is actually from the sleeve notes of a Cape Breton CD, MacKinnon's Brook.  We're trying to get the CD from the USA, but meanwhile, you can enjoy reading the article!!

Here's the sleeve notes LINK - CLICK HERE.  The article was uploaded by Kate Dunlay, one of the authors.

Full details:-

Rounder 7040. Traditional Fiddle Music of Cape Breton series, Vol.4: MacKinnon's Brook, notes by Kate Dunlay and Mark Wilson; tune identifications by Paul Cranford.
