Review Text

  • By Gregory MacDougall on April 13, 2017

    Ken captured a rich piece of oral history that has almost entirely disappeared from "The Island." I was born there but grew up in the states. I go back every few years. There are many stories here that have helped me piece together aspects of my mom and dad's personality, as well as grandparents and relatives. Indeed, music was a fabric of daily life on the Island. Ken has pieced together stories from hundreds of islanders, grouped them together based on similarities to piece together sections in a chapter, and grouped together sections to make cohesive chapters. The book is full of stories quoted from fiddlers. Chapter 5, for example is called "That's the Way We Had to Learn" which is in itself, a quote. Chapter 5 has several sections that illustrate how people learned to fiddle. One section is called "You Lived Dangerously if You Took the Fiddle." This section includes 8 really wonderful stories from fiddlers such as stealing the fiddle while dad was away to plucking a horses tail to get hair for the bow!
