BAY OF FUNDY. Canadian, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by fiddler Bill Guest, originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, but a resident of Goodlettsville, Tennessee, for many years prior to returning to Halifax. Guest has composed a number of traditional sounding tunes and published several collections of tune books of his and other famous fiddlers' music. Guest, a multi-instrumentalist, played piano for Canadian fiddle great Don Messer and many other Canadian and Nashville musicians. The Bay of Fundy is located between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and is the location of some of the most dramatic tides in the world.
