Music from the October Gaspé Wellness Centre

I put up a playlist of 27 songs and tunes from a sampler CD I prepared for the Gaspé Wellness Centre on the new sister blog, "Gaspesian Community Sound."

I created the other blog to share a greater diversity of local music in our archival recordings including country, rock n' roll, and guitar picking as well as, of course, fiddle music. However, I want to use this blog as a resource that is devoted more-or-less exclusively to Gaspesian fiddle music.

On the playlist you'll find some great fiddle music that we've recently acquired from old tapes, tunes played by people like Hermas Réhel, Bill Lucas, Willie Methot, Charlie Drody, James Henry Conley, Réjean Fergusson, and Gérard Durrette. Some of these players I would like to feature more right here in the near future.
