Long story cut short, I wrote a piece -
http://www.salutlive.com/2011/07/cape-breton.html - about Cape Breton music that included this quote from someone describing a hospital visit:

"The guy two beds over is Dougie Grant a fiddler from Inverness, contemporary of Donald R Cameron, John Allenstein and Buddie MacMaster. Two or three time a day he plays - we just shout out the names of jigs and reels we remember-he plus them all Well! Only in a Cape Breton hospital eh?"

The quote was from a third-party Facebook source and I have not been able to make contact with him since.

But I had never heard of Dougie Grant and can find no trace in basic internet searches.

I thought the quote would appeal to pretty much anyone who makes music in Cape Breton, or appreciates the music made there, but i would love to know more about Dougie Grant.

In the Facebook message referred to, the name John Allenstein was followed by the word "cater:" in case that is a clue.

I hope no one mind if I give a solitary bump-up to this request for any info on Dougie Grant, Cape Breton fiddler. If this produces nothing, I shall leave it at that and hope my Facebook contact responds to my message to him.
