Promenade all – Jim Magill on fiddle

Jim Magill was born in Northern Ireland in 1902 and passed in Toronto in 1954. He was a radio fiddler on Toronto’s CFRB between 11946 and 1954. He also played for square dances in Toronto with the Northern Ramblers.

Here’s the Calgary Breakdown.

And finally, here he is doing a version of The Texas Quickstep. In old time circles, I think this tune is perhaps more widely known as Rachel.
