Various- Lighthouse Collection of Newly Composed Fiddle Tunes
\r\nOriginal Melodies in the Cape Breton, Irish, and Scottish Tradition compiled by Paul Cranford\r\n

This book celebrates the vibrant musical culture of Cape Breton Island. It gives a refreshing glimpse into a rooted, community-based, living tradition. Fiddle tunes from more than seventy-five contemporary composers are presented together with Scottish and Cape Breton music from earlier centuries. Compiled as a part of Cranford Publications Cape Breton Musical Heritage Series, this collection is presented to give recognition to The Cape Breton Fiddlers Association.\r\n\r\n

Still working his day job as a lighthousekeeper, fiddler Paul Cranford has been publishing books of fiddle tunes since 1979. The Lighthouse Collection contains over 250 of his own tunes plus 40 compositions from his friends. The book is bundled with The Lighthouse, Paul's popular first CD.\r\n\r\n

Paul's tunes have been recorded by such notables as Jerry Holland, Sharon Shannon, Maire O'Keeffe, The Barra MacNeils and David Greenberg.\r\n\r\n
