X: 1 T:Mate's Reel M:C| L:1/8 C:after Rufus Guinchard; C:his "closer" Fiddle Tunes 1989 S:several yr, Scotsbroome's closer; also their 3rd tune for Chorus Jig R:Reel O: O: Newfoundland; possibly a Cape Breton tune before that H:Rufus Guinchard was 89, almost 90 and a cultural hero back home, when H:he was Fiddle faculty in Summer 1989. He was invited back (I think to H:Dance week in Fall) the next year. He was too sick to come and sent H:younger men in his place; he lived long enough for them to come back H:home, and give their report, and to make his 91st birthday. And he H:died. He was said to be active, playing and recording, well into his H:final year.
