The Maple Leaf Two-Step

I’m going to continue to occasionally share tunes played by great Canadian fiddlers here at 27th Street. I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do. Last time I featured Manitoba fiddler Patti Kusturok playing the Red River Jig. Let’s go east to Ontario today and feature the late great Ward Allen. Even if you’ve never heard of Ward Allen, I’ll bet you’ve heard one of his tunes, because his masterpiece Maple Sugar has become a standard, played wherever there are fiddlers.

Here is Ward Allen playing The Maple Leaf Two-Step, from 1953. I could listen to this tune all day!
