This album has its own particular tale of fortune, having been recorded in 1977, but rejected at the time by the notoriously shy MacLean for unspecified reasons. When Rounder was finally able to arrange for its release, an additional cut featuring MacLean and pianist Marie MacLellan, recorded in 1961, was added. Students of traditional Scottish music will find a great deal to enjoy here - aside from his wonderful fiddle playing, MacLean was a notable student of Scots music, making considerable efforts to acquire old manuscripts and numerous sources of music.
Cape Breton Island also offers miles of coastline. The Port of Sydney is a popular destination for many prominent cruise lines and visitors with sailboats or superyachts will find and plenty of ports of sail and marinas to dock, moor, and explore. Driving? The North American highway system connects all major routes to Nova Scotia via the Trans-Canada Highway, which leads eastward over the Canso Causeway to Cape Breton Island. Should you need a lift, there are also bus services and charters into the Island from various locations.
The music of the small island of Cape Breton, located off the North-Eastern coast of the province of Nova Scotia, is perhaps the best known traditional music in Canada. In the 19th century, the island of Cape Breton saw the coming of large numbers of Scots, following the infamous Highland Clearances.
Born in 1916, Joseph Walter MacLean was descended from Scottish Highlanders who settled in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in 1817. The labels of his classic 78s read "Joe MacLean and his Old Time Scotch Music," an apt description of the thrilling music captured here. These previously unissued 1977 recordings reunite Joe with his long time associates Lila Hashem and Peter Dominic to recapture the melodies that rang through the dance halls of Cape Breton in the &.Completing the album is an exciting 1961 recording from a house party with Marie MacLellan on piano.
Produced and recorded by Micheal O Suilleabhain and Robin Broadbank, the recordings were made in 1993, February 19th & 20th during the Cape Breton Island Festival organised by the Traditional Music Society of University College, Cork. The event was a festival where the traditional music, song and dance of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, the Canadian Maritimes, was the focus of a four day festival hosted by the Traditional Music Society and the Music Department of UCC, University College, Cork.
