Scottish settlers in Cape Breton have maintained traditions of instrumental dance music since the time of the highland clearances, a period which coincidentally coincided with the Golden Age of Scottish fiddle music.

This collection presents older Scottish fiddle music from the era 1740-1935. The settings of these tunes pay respect both to the composers' intentions as given in classic Scottish published collections, and to the Cape Breton traditions which have given this music new life and caused it to evolve.
