Mac Beattie and his Melodiers

Time for a fix of music from the Ottawa Valley featuring Mac Beattie and his Melodiers.

Here’s Little Shack up the Pontiac….

Here’s one I’ve shared before – but it’s so good it deserves to played over and over again – Old Tyme Fiddler’s Dream with Reg Hill on Fiddle.

Man, this tune ought to be played in schools so kids can grow up knowing all about some of the great Canadian fiddlers. Next up is Maple Sugar Blues. Mr. Beattie wrote this one to mark the passing Ward Allen, composer of Maple Sugar and loads of other great fiddle tunes…

Finally, I’d like to close this post with the tune perhaps most often associated with Mac Beattie, The Log Driver’s Song (not to be confused with Wade Hemsworth’s Log Driver’s Waltz). I could listen to these old tunes all day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
