There are three races that have given us the best fiddle players - the Scottish, Irish and French. Much of the Scottish dance music finds its origin in very early France.
With the settling of the Americas, these people gave our Western and Old Time music its foundation.
Lucky Ambo (Ambeault) is French-Canadian and his playing denotes the musical family he came from. Born in Bathurst, New Brunswick, he made music his profession. His credits read like a grand tour of the Western circuit. CBC, Dominion Barn Dance, Country Hoedown, etc., and he was winner of the 1955 Dominion Fiddle Championship. He has appeared with many of Canada’s finest old time artists. Lucky plays most string instruments and has composed many original tunes, several of which appear on this LP.
If you like good old time fiddlin’, then this is for you!
