In 1953 Cape Breton fiddler William (Bill) Lamey emigrated from Sydney, Nova Scotia, to Boston, Massachusetts, where for the next 30 years he was the primary force in the promotion of Cape Breton music. During that time Bill also made some of the most exciting and intimate 'house session' recordings of Cape Breton fiddling, recordings that have become influential through the home tape network. Released commercially for the first time on this compilation are newly remastered recordings from the 'Golden Age' of Cape Breton fiddle music that bring to life those classic Boston house sessions. Produced by Mary Elizabeth Lamey and Paul M. MacDonald.
