Information/Write-up

William (Bill) Lamey (1914-1991) spent most of his adult life in the Boston area. As a young man, before he left Cape Breton, he made a number of 78s which later, in the 70s, were reissued on the Shanachie label. Those recordings were very influential to a whole generation of players, but could only give a taste of the man's great ability on the fiddle... until now.

In 1953, Bill emigrated from Sydney, Nova Scotia, to Boston, Massachusetts, where for the next 30 years he was the primary force in the promotion of Cape Breton music. During that time Bill also made some of the most exciting and intimate "house session" recordings that have become influential through the home tape network.
