THIS RENOWNED FIDDLER grew up in Inverness County, Cape Breton, influenced by the musical giants of his time.
In 1949 Buddy became a frequent performer at local square dances, including Glencoe Mills. For over 70 years he shared his mastery as a performer and a teacher across Canada. For his years of service Buddy has received honorary degrees, the Order of Nova Scotia, and the Order of Canada.
