Geüpload op YouTube door ceolach op 2 dec 2006. This clip is from the program The Vanishing Cape Breton Fiddler and is not available anywhere to my knowledge so I post it here for educational purposes since I don’t own the copyright. It was directed by its host Ron MacInnis.Widely lauded for prompting a revival of fiddling in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia this clip features composer Dan R. MacDonald and a very young Rankin family circa 1971. Dan R. was John Allan Cameron’s uncle and influenced the youg Rankins when he lived next to them on Back St. in Mabou.I’m finishing a book on Dan R.’s life and have collected a fair bit of info on him and his family. The last scene in the broadcast version of this film has Dan R. and a young John Morris Rankin walking down the road hand in hand. Touching scene.
