Earl Mitton’s Breakdown

Here’s another Canadian fiddle tune. I stumbled across this one on the YouTube while listening to some Mac Beattie and his Ottawa Valley Melodiers material. This is called Earl Mitton’s Breakdown from an album called Down East Fiddle Favourites by Earl Mitton and the Valley Rhythm Boys. Mr. Mitton was the composer of  the Carleton County Breakdown and numerous other tunes.  He was born in Nova Scotia in 1926 and moved to New Brunswick after serving in the army during the Second World War. He died in 1991.

If any viewers have additional information about Earl Mitton, please comment.

Here’s one more of his recordings, The Rippling Water jig.
