TRIP TO MABOU RIDGE. Canadian, Pipe March (2/4 time). Canada, Nova Scotia. A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. Composed in 1938 by influential Cape Breton fiddler and composer Dan Hughie MacEachern (1913-1996), born in Queensville, Nova Scotia. He began fiddling at an early age, with help from his older brothers John Willie and Alex but he did not record commercially in his lifetime. He composed one of his most famous compositions, "Trip to Mabou Ridge," after coming home from a dance in the old schoolhouse at Mabou Ridge.
