This week on Rewind, remembering the godfather of Cape Breton fiddling, Buddy MacMaster who died last August. He would have been 90- years old on October 18.
Last spring he was honoured by one of North America's largest folk music organizations, joining the ranks of Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Joan Baez and Stan Rogers.
As his niece Natalie MacMaster, herself an accomplished fiddler said: "Fiddling is a way of life for us. It's not done on the side. It's part of how we live. It's part of our joys, it's part of what we seek and desire."
