Ottawa Valley Old Time

I have a soft spot for old time music from the Ottawa Valley. Come on in and join me for bit and let’s listen to some fantastic Canadian folk music…

That was Mac Beattie and his Ottawa Valley Melodiers. Mr. Beattie’s fiddle player was a fellow named Reg Hill. Here’s his Madawaska River Breakdown…

Let’s hear one more fiddle tune, if you don’t mind….it’s Ward Allen performing Frenchie’s Reel

Finally, here’s Hank LaRiviere – AKA Hank Rivers, performing Maple Sugar Sweetheart. He took the melody from Ward Allen’s Maple Sugar and added lyrics – that mention Allen of course.

Have your say...
