Old Man's Table

I first heard a recording of Grandy in 1984, a kitchen tape made by Will Henry at Carl Grexton's house in Grandview, Manitoba. Grandy was from Camperville, he was an old friend of Carl's, and he was Metis. I had never heard anything quite like it - great crooked tunes (really crooked!), fantastic drive and feet that pounded like a prairie thunderstorm. Scottish, French-Canadian, Appalachian and Aboriginal all rolled into one. I met him the following year, and many others from his tradition. Now, 30 years later, it's time to pay tribute to one of the grand old men of Manitoba fiddling, "the daddy of them all" as he had been called. There's no music quite like it. 

For more info on Grandy and his tradition, and to hear the original field recordings, go to: www.grandyproject.ca

"Well done! This is a wonderful collection that    preserves more of the traditional Metis tunes and demonstrates the variations that the older players put on some of the standards."
John Arcand, Saskatchewan

What a fine project this is!The quirky nature of many of the tunes is a real highlight and far outside the box of what we consider Canadian fiddle. I enjoyed the tunes, your playing and Ian's fine guitar work.
Gord Stobbe, Nova Scotia
