Legendary Cape Breton fiddler Buddy MacMaster turns 90 this week and some special musical friends and family want to help celebrate the occasion on his home turf. Universally admired, everybody has a heartfelt story about Buddy. It is impossible to overstate the importance of his contribution to the music and culture of Cape Breton Island. The revered fiddler, and Order of Canada recipient, is loved and admired throughout the world of Scottish, Irish and Cape Breton traditional music and he is the inspiration behind many of today’s finest players—pipers, piano players and guitar players as well as fiddlers. From Scotland to the U.S. and all over Cape Breton Island, they will raise a bow and a chanter to honour the true master tonight.
