The Prince Edward Island Style Of Fiddling: Fiddlers Of Western Prince Edward Island Prince Edward Island -- which lies off the Atlantic coast of Canada -- is home to one of the oldest, strongest, and most vibrant traditional fiddling cultures in North America. In the course of over two centuries of settlement, Scottish, Irish, and Acadian-French influences have joined to create a powerful, driving, intensely rhythmic, distinctly North American fiddling style. In the western part of the Island, the Acadian-French influence is strongest, giving the music a special urgency and unique rhythmic twist. This recording offers a generous sampling of important older "up west" players -- Eddy Arsenault, Sid Baglole, Peter Doiron, Zlie-Anne Arsenault Gaudet, Warren Leard, Harry Lecky, Leonard McDonald, Dennis Pitre, and Alton Silliker. Also included are selections from some younger players who represent the new generation of P.E.I. fiddling -- Peter Arsenault, Anastasia DesRoches and Adam Driscoll.
