This began as Hugh was a young lad and Jack would take him to different fiddle contests. Hugh is a self taught musician who started off at the age of six playing drums. From there he went on to play bagpipes at nine and then fiddle at fifteen.
He won a fiddle contest at the Exhibition CNE? Hugh is a third generation Scot who descends from the Isle of Tiree. He comes from a family background of fiddlers who immigrated to Canada in the s. Hugh shares his talent with you on this very fine fiddle album and I am sure you will agree with me that this is great toe-tapping music from the very popular Maple Sugar to the slower but just as toe-tapping Peek-A-Boo Waltz.
This album was made possible by the father and family and I am sure that after listening to this record you will join with me in thanking them for the opportunity to enjoy this fine music.
Even then, old-time music held an odd fascination for him.
Don, Charlie Chamberlain and Duke Neilson - ed to his home town. As a lad of 17, he would attend these country dances more to be charmed by the fiddling magic of Messer and his men than by the pretty girls who flounced about the floor.
So charmed was he, in fact, that he found himself asking Messer for a job. Later, he switched to fiddle. Today, Ned will tell you proudly that Don is still his ideal. Ned now enjoys a reputation as one of the greatest Canadian performers of old-time music, but it took him quite a while to earn it.

Today, much of his time is spent traveling. Frequent tours do not leave him too much time to spend at home in Saint John.
But even when Ned does have a chance to relax with his wife and five children, his fiddle is never idle for very long.
The whole family lives with country music, and the Landry household is often the scene of a family-type variety show. Fourteen-year old Patsy, his oldest daughter, who travels with him during summer vacations, sings and tap-dances. She prefers to remain the musical critic of the family.
Being a woodsman at heart, Ned has always loved to play for the loggers in the lumbercamps of New Brunswick. Many of the selections included in this album are the tunes most often requested of Ned on his personal appearances. The moment his bow touches the strings, a mysterious feeling takes hold of his audience.
Toes start tapping; hands start clapping. His records are to be heard in places high and places humble. From his fiddle comes a personality that is Landry, and a style that is Canadian.
All selections heard have been rosin tested by him during innumerable public appearances. Basing his choice on the numbers that have been most requested, he feels that the fourteen tunes represented here are among the most popular in his current repertoire.
This is a contest taking place annually in Shelburne, Ontario, organized by the Rotary Club. Among the participants are the most competent fiddlers in North America. Although anyone may enter, the men are soon separated from the boys in this two-day marathon.
