CRANDALL ROAD, THE. Canadian, Reel. Canada, Cape Breton. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddler). AABB. Composed by Cape Breton fiddler Dan R. MacDonald (1911-1976). Dan R. was a prolific composer born in Judique, Inverness County, Cape Breton, although many of his adult years were spent in the Detroit/Windsor area. There he was part of a large expatriate Cape Breton community, and was a member of the Five MacDonald Fiddlers, before returning to Cape Breton after he retired. He is reputed to have penned some two thousand tunes!.
