http://www.sunjournal.com/story/305913-3/Entertainment/Natalie_MacMaster/# PORTLAND - Over the last decade, fiddler extraordinaire Natalie MacMaster has gone from the dance halls and traditional Scots-Irish music ceilidhs of her Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, to critical acclaim on folk, world and pop music stages around the globe.

Thank you, Sandy. This sounds like a great night. No way I can afford it but perhaps others will be able to enjoy both the pre-concert lecture and the concert.

Natalie was here in Maine a couple of years back when I was having surgery/biopsy nonsense at Mercy Hospital. I was wheeled into a corridor to let the meds wear off and I thought I had died.
Beautiful fiddle music...a visit to the hospital wards to share herself. My only disappointment was that I couldn't move to see Natalie dance and fiddle at the same time.

What a great lady!

Definite maybe for me.

As a person Natalie is very giving and hospital visits, fiddle in hand, is very much her way of giving back. She is a great fiddler and puts on a great show!

Can you ask her if she knows a young person who wants the fiddle? I actually know a MacMaster here from Cape Breton and have thought of asking her if she has any great neices nephews etc. She was a phone operator or radio perhaps when the great Springhill mine disaster occurred. mg

Mary, I passed your offer on to The Cape Breton Fiddlers Assoc. I haven't heard anything back yet but I will pass it along when I do. I haven't seen Natalie for a long time but I know her father and will ask him when I see him.
