Thank you from this Yankee. It is going to take hours to watch these snippets and probably many dollars to buy the CD's. I am fond of Irish/Celtic/Sea music. Would you please recommend any from Eastern Canada and Newfoundland?

Well, if you like that music you probably know this track already, it was a big hit, here's Sleepy Maggie by probably that most well known East Coast fiddler, Ashley Macissac, and Mary Jane Lamond, of a Cape Breton family, singing in Canadian Gaelic.

I feel this song below captures the Newfoundland sense of humour and the political tradition of music in that province:

It's not only Celtic people on our east coast. Emile Benoit is probably the most well known Franco-Newfoundlander fiddler:

This is Northern Primitive, one of my favourite small-time Canadian bands ever. From -I think- either Welland or St. Catherines:

I'll never forget the time I saw these guys play in my friend's garage and finished their set with this song. I had never heard the band before, but I would never, ever forget the bassline that appears towards the middle-end of this song once it kicked in.
