Over and over. This video is aimed at the fiddler and the fiddle fanatic. If you want the music and how individual musicians make it, this video is definitely for you. There is very little Cape Breton scenery • if s the musicians performing seated in one spot • but you'll get plenty of music, music, music. How each holds the violin and the bow, from the seated danc? ing of Rodney MacDonald, to the barely perceptible movements of Robert Stubbert, to Theresa MacLellan's authority and grace • this is what the video provides. No one should miss Brenda Stubbert's daughter Tracey's absolutely marvelous stepdancing. Produced by Fiddler Magazine, this package includes a very good booklet with: an article by Sandy Maclntyre on "Fiddling, Cape Breton Style," an analysis by Kate Dunlay of the fiddlers' individual playing styles, little biographies of each performer, a list of more books and re? cordings by and about the performers • and of course, a complete list of 9ll the tunes in the order they are played. 90-minute video $49.95 Celebrating 7' Years Cape Breton's MAGAZINE ' TWENTY-FIVE YEARS of Cape Breton's Magazine is a success for all of us.
