Online exclusive! Sharp and pungent 'cutting'; rich and continuous harmonization; evocative dance lift; Gaelic in the grace notes: that is the unique approach to violin music native to the Scots settlers of Inverness County in Nova Scotia. Johnny MacDonald grew up practically next door to many of Cape Breton's most revered players and he still performs his tunes in that grand style. And pianist Doug MacPhee is right there with him, playing out the same melodies in infectious support.
