I'm #heading up to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia this weekend for a couple of weeks to soak up maritime fiddling. #
I am hoping to catch the mandolin work of Elmer Deagle from PEI in a gig somewhere. #
Anyone know of any great instrument stores or other mandolin related contacts on the island? #
We do plan to take in a day of the Stan Rodger's folk festival. #
Sadly Stan was killed here in Cincinnati in June of 1983 or thereabouts. #He died in an on-board fire in the restroom of an Air Canada flight that made an emergency landing here. #He was the heart and soul of Canadian folk music and a tremendous loss.
