    Default Canadian folk music moment (no mandolin content)

    Just thought I'd share this cute video of 16-year-old, Prince Edward Island, Acadian fiddler, Tianna Gallant getting ready for the big (hockey) game. If link doesn't work, try:

    or google "P.E.I. hockey player's phone 'blowing up' after pre-game fiddling video shared far and wide".

    I don't seem to be able to load the video at this time. (Please don't tell me how; I know.)

    Robert Johnson's mother, describing blues musicians:
    "I never did have no trouble with him until he got big enough to be round with bigger boys and off from home. Then he used to follow all these harp blowers, mandoleen (sic) and guitar players."
