Thread Name: American versus Canadian folk music
Subject: RE: American versus Canadian folk music
My take on the differences in root music (oldtime) is that particularly southern fiddle music differs greatly from Quebec, Maritime or even Prairie fiddle playing. Even within the Maritimes and Quebec there are different styles. As a kid the only oldtime music I could get on radio was from Wheeling or Nashville. Canada in the 50's did not have much music of that genre. Terrific musicians both sides of the border!
