When Here Meets There

“When Here Meets There is an exciting new collaboration between two young Canadian fiddlers at the top of their game… While each fiddler brings to the album a flavour of his own, the contrast between their playing is nothing but complementary…When Here Meets There, when Ontario meets Nova Scotia, when Canadian old-time, Cape Breton, French-Canadian, Orkney, Texas, Antigonish Co. and other styles and tunes from a variety of traditions meet on this album, the result is truly magical.”
Dr. Sherry Johnson

York University, Toronto

Shane Cook latest cd

Shane Cook, Shane Cook: The Dorchester fiddler is still in his early 20s, but he has been making good records since 1994, at least. This loving and brilliantly played tribute to the Canadian old-time fiddle tradition brings together a great lineup -- Cook, mandolin player Ray Legere, pianist Kim Holmes, guitarist Brian Pickell and bassist Lew Mele. Relaxed, sprightly and precise, it was recorded at the Cook family home. A tear comes to my eye when Cook plays Don Messer's Breakdown, as a young master gestures to a dear departed hero. Co-produced by Cook and Legere.
