    "Well done! This is a wonderful collection that    preserves more of the traditional Metis tunes and demonstrates the variations that the older players put on some of the standards."
John Arcand, Saskatchewan

What a fine project this is!The quirky nature of many of the tunes is a real highlight and far outside the box of what we consider Canadian fiddle. I enjoyed the tunes, your playing and Ian's fine guitar work.
Gord Stobbe, Nova Scotia
